October 2019 First Friday Featuring Emily Hoffman
October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Members of the Custom House Maritime Museum are cordially invited to our First Friday Social on October 4, 2019 at 6:00pm featuring Emily Hoffman.
Local history buffs will be quick to recognize Emily Hoffman, whose keen interest in history and passion for storytelling have made her a notable presence both at the Custom House Friday night socials and in the hallowed halls of the Museum of Old Newbury where she is a docent and board member. A retired North Shore social worker with a bachelors degree from Lesley College, Emily moved in 2013 to Newburyport, a place she has known and loved all her life. With her penchant for history, research and a personal family connection to the early settlers of this area, Emily has been delving into the past for years. In the process, she uncovered some strange and haunting tales of Newburyport, tales that will not only amuse but intrigue even the most uninterested in history.
Come and enjoy a sampling of wines— along with fine craft beers from Newburyport Brewery — the official beer of the Custom House Maritime Museum! Refreshments will be served.
Please, remember to bring your membership card with you!
