A NEW Public Program Series: What Does “Colonial” Mean to You?

The NSCDA’s National Museum Alliance Committee is pleased to announce a new lecture series, “What Does ‘Colonial’ Mean To You?”

In this ongoing series, we’re inviting leading historians and preservationists to expand our understanding of a shared “Colonial” past. Each session will allow for audience questions and run about an hour.

This NSCDA-sponsored opportunity is free to ALL of our members. A modest suggested donation is asked of non-members who may wish to attend.
