People have relied on weapons to advance both their best and worst impulses—to put food on the table, to protect themselves, to enforce or defy the law, to defend or conquer territory and treasure, or to liberate some while enslaving others. This exhibition features weapons and accoutrements from the Virginia Historical Society’s collection crafted in Virginia or used by its people to achieve those goals. Although these weapons may seem primitive to us today, all of them reflect the best technology available at the time. Many are products of Virginia’s desire to modernize and industrialize in the century after the American Revolution. Most of these weapons demonstrate sk... 2017-08-04 Virginia Historical Society

How should a politician be depicted in a portrait? In what pose should a woman of fashion be painted? What form should a chair or a silver cup take? The choices are limitless. For centuries, artists and patrons have searched for the manner of visual expression—the style—that best suit their vision of themselves and their era. Artistic movements resulted that engulfed the various forms of expression—painting, sculpture, interior design, decoration, and architecture—and brought them into harmony with one another. Styles tend to progress from—or react against—a preceding style. 2017-08-04 Virginia Historical Society

The geography of Virginia has shaped the history of the state and the nation. A mild climate and navigable rivers attracted Native Americans and the first European settlers to the Tidewater. Fertile soil fueled a prosperous economy, and the Chesapeake Bay and the rivers that feed it connected Virginia and its agricultural products to the world. The landscapes of the Piedmont, Valley, and Blue Ridge inspired Thomas Jefferson's vision of a virtuous rural society. Virginia's importance and location midway between North and South brought the federal capital to the banks of the Potomac and made it the bloodiest battleground of the Civil War. The harbor of Hampton Roads allowed military bu... 2017-08-04 Virginia Historical Society

In 1818, one out of every three men in Hingham was engaged in the woodenware industry. Hingham craftsmen made buckets, tubs, pails, and wooden boxes which made their way throughout New England and beyond, earning the town the nickname, "Bucket Town." In the mid- to late 19th century, the Hingham craftsmen started turning out wooden toys, including elaborately detailed miniature furniture which, like the buckets and boxes, were distributed nationwide. Our exhibit includes dozens of examples of Hingham woodenware from our collection, associated artifacts, documents, and images, as well as interactive displays.  For more information, call 781-749-7721 https://s3.amazonaws.com/history-list-prod/data/7042/content.jpg 2017-11-18 Hingham Historical Society Free event.

The geography of Virginia has shaped the history of the state and the nation. A mild climate and navigable rivers attracted Native Americans and the first European settlers to the Tidewater. Fertile soil fueled a prosperous economy, and the Chesapeake Bay and the rivers that feed it connected Virginia and its agricultural products to the world. The landscapes of the Piedmont, Valley, and Blue Ridge inspired Thomas Jefferson's vision of a virtuous rural society. Virginia's importance and location midway between North and South brought the federal capital to the banks of the Potomac and made it the bloodiest battleground of the Civil War. The harbor of Hampton Roads allowed military bu... 2017-08-04 Virginia Historical Society

The names of popular toys from the 1950s, '60s and '70s capture the craziness, the joy, the sheer fun of being a kid. But beneath those nutty names are rich veins of nostalgia, memory, and history. The stories of the kids who played with these toys, the adults who bought them, the child-rearing experts who judged them, and the people who invented them reflect the rhythms of American life. Experience the toys and their stories through three imagined living rooms that bring the decades back to l... 2017-08-04 Virginia Historical Society

People have relied on weapons to advance both their best and worst impulses—to put food on the table, to protect themselves, to enforce or defy the law, to defend or conquer territory and treasure, or to liberate some while enslaving others. This exhibition features weapons and accoutrements from the Virginia Historical Society’s collection crafted in Virginia or used by its people to achieve those goals. Although these weapons may seem primitive to us today, all of them reflect the best technology available at the time. Many are products of Virginia’s desire to modernize and industrialize in the century after the American Revolution. Most of these weapons demonstrate sk... 2017-08-04 Virginia Historical Society

How should a politician be depicted in a portrait? In what pose should a woman of fashion be painted? What form should a chair or a silver cup take? The choices are limitless. For centuries, artists and patrons have searched for the manner of visual expression—the style—that best suit their vision of themselves and their era. Artistic movements resulted that engulfed the various forms of expression—painting, sculpture, interior design, decoration, and architecture—and brought them into harmony with one another. Styles tend to progress from—or react against—a preceding style. 2017-08-04 Virginia Historical Society

In 1818, one out of every three men in Hingham was engaged in the woodenware industry. Hingham craftsmen made buckets, tubs, pails, and wooden boxes which made their way throughout New England and beyond, earning the town the nickname, "Bucket Town." In the mid- to late 19th century, the Hingham craftsmen started turning out wooden toys, including elaborately detailed miniature furniture which, like the buckets and boxes, were distributed nationwide. Our exhibit includes dozens of examples of Hingham woodenware from our collection, associated artifacts, documents, and images, as well as interactive displays.  For more information, call 781-749-7721 https://s3.amazonaws.com/history-list-prod/data/7042/content.jpg 2017-11-19 Hingham Historical Society Free event.
