The Harvard Historical Society Invites You to Discover Your Town
GUIDE TO 2015 PROGRAMMING
Pioneers of Harvard House Tour
Saturday, October 24, 2015
The 2015 Historical Society House Tour celebrates some of the oldest homes in town, whose residents were influential "pioneers". Each house represents the era in which it was built and also the changes various homeowners made through the years. Visitors will learn of the rich history of each house and will also meet one of the home's most prominent inhabitants. These pioneers will relate highlights of their lives and talk about Harvard in the "good ole days." Tickets on sale. SAVE $10—PRE-ORDER NOW. For more detailed information go to our Events page.

Choices are: Turkey on sourdough with cheddar cheese, red pepper aioli, lettuce and tomato, or grilled vegetable on ciabatta with goat cheese, spinach, pesto, oil, salt and pepper, or tuna on whole wheat bread with lettuce and pickles.
