 Historical Society Field Trips!
 The Stoneham Historical Society's inaugural Field Trip series was recently launched with a small group of members and guests enjoying a VIP tour of the Commonwealth Museum at 220 Morrissey Blvd in Boston - adjacent to the JFK Library. The newly renovated local treasure features "state of the art interactive exhibits" and the Dramatic Treasures Gallery, which holds the great historic documents
that protect our liberties.
More HS trips are in the planning stages.
