Join us as we step back in time to explore the 19th century with visits to the Fruitlands Museum, home to the utopian transcendentalist socialist farm in Harvard, Massachusetts, begun by Amos Bronson Alcott and Charles Lane; and the Concord Museum, which houses an important collection of paintings, decorative arts, and archival material illustrating the town’s rich heritage and literary significance. We will be accompanied by Laura Turner Igoe, the Maher Curatorial Fellow of American Art at the Harvard Art Museums.
