MHS 1938 Hurricane Exhibit

Please join the Mattapoisett Historical Society in commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the 1938 Hurricane as we open a special exhibit, which will look back on September 21, 1938, a day of great loss and destruction for the town of Mattapoisett. The museum will be open Saturdays during the month of September from 1:00 to 4:00 pm for exhibit viewing, and will offer some special programs:

September 7: Open House. Come meet several members of the Community who remember the Hurricane from their childhood, and the ORRHS students who interviewed them. Light refreshments will be served.

September 21: Join us for a Special Film: “The 1938 Hurricane: A Wind To Shake The World – Everett S. Allen,” the full video version of Everett S. Allen’s 1976 bestseller, “A Wind To Shake The World: The Story of The 1938 Hurricane,” produced and directed by M.L. Baron. This award-winning classic takes you back in time to what the year 1938 was like and the hurricane that “destroyed the age of Innocence.” M. L. Baron will join us to give an introduction to the film.

Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for children 6 and up, and free for members. For more information, please call 508-758-2844 or email Mattapoisett Historical Society, 5 Church Street.
