The Manchester Giving Tree

Be a part of something growing!  The MHA's Manchester Giving Tree is a way to celebrate your Manchester roots by including your family or a loved one as a permanent tribute on a leaf of the tree, displayed prominently at the entrance of the Millyard Museum. 

For a gift of $1,000 to the MHA, you can have a name permanently installed on the Manchester Giving Tree.  Donations may be made in memory or in honor of your own family or family member, or anyone else you choose. 

The Manchester Giving Tree is a way for families or their loved ones to be remembered by future Manchester generations.  And you can take satisfaction in knowing that your contribution will improve the MHA's ability to collect, preserve, and share Manchester's diverse and exciting history. 

For more information, please contact the MHA at (603) 622-7531 or library@manchesterhistoric.org
Lecture: The Blush of Success
Saturday, January 21, 2017
11:00 a.m. - Millyard Museum
Included with museum admission  

Manchester's own Charles Revson started with one bottle of nail polish, and he built an empire - the Revlon Company - that fueled a rags-to-riches story to rival that of "The Great Gatsby."

He had help of course.  His brothers, Joseph and Martin, followed him from Manchester to Manhattan, and together - with a little help from a television game show called "The $64,000 Question" - they reshaped the world of cosmetics.

Find out more about the West Side kids from another West Sider - MHA Executive Director John Clayton - when he speaks at the Millyard Museum on January 21st.  
Coming Soon - New Exhibit on Public Health in Manchester

The MHA staff has been having a lot of fun lately going through archives and artifacts looking for items that would work well in our upcoming exhibit on the history of public health in Manchester.  Among the fascinating medical devices that we have come across is this item.  Care to venture a guess as to what it was used for?  To find out, and to learn more about the intriguing history of healthcare in Manchester, check out our new exhibit coming in March!
