Lexington Historical Society has selected Massachusetts-based, women owned H2 Design Studio to create the physical starting point of a visitor’s journey through the rich, diverse, and dynamic history of Lexington.
The Society set a fundraising goal of $500,000 and achieved it in less than nine months through a combination of private donations, state funding earmarked by Rep. Michelle Ciccolo, and a fundraising campaign. The project will transform the Society’s headquarters into an interactive exhibition and education space, setting the stage for the visitor’s experience of Lexington history and the three other museums the Society oversees (Buckman Tavern, Munroe Tavern and the Hancock-Clarke House).
The project is currently in its design phase. The Society’s Annual Meeting, scheduled for the evening of April 4, 2023, will be the first chance for the public to see mock-ups and renderings of the new space, and hear from Society stakeholders and H2 about their vision for the space. The project is slated to be completed and open to the public in Fall of 2024.
