The place we call Exeter had a great deal to offer people from far away. Fish, lumber, land, jobs and American freedom lured people from all over the world to New England. In this special artifact-focused fundraiser program, curator Barbara Rimkunas will guide us back through our town’s history to examine Exeter’s many immigrant waves. We will discuss why people left their home countries, what the journeys were like, what Exeter had to offer, how Exeter benefited from the cultural influx and to what extent the dreams were realized.
Ticket price includes the presentation and light refreshments.
