The Society’s Website and Social Media Initiative Moves Ahead

Over the past two months, the Society has moved forward in leaps and bounds with the organization’s website and new ways of communicating with the public.

Volunteers, Kari Mofford & Yvonne Dhimitri, have joined Aziz Karsan as Society website administrators significantly lightening the responsibility of our Webmaster.

At Long Last … The Gallivan House Historic Preservation Restriction Agreement Is Complete

As we indicated in the Society’s June Newsletter, the Gallivan House, the brick NeoGeorgian home directly across the street from the Town Green, was purchased by Braintree Historical Society in 2005 to join the General Sylvanus Thayer Birthplace, the Asa French House and the Barn and Resource Center at 31 Tenney Road, as one historic campus. The home has remained unused for a majority of time since its purchase.

Over the last few months, BHS launched a new Volunteer Initiative. In our two very successful Volunteer Orientation sessions, a full house of Volunteers brought new energy, ideas, and enthusiasm about the incredible history and legacy of the Braintree Historical Society. Our goal for this Initiative is to increase our volunteers to 100 over the course of the coming year. Won't you join us?
