History in Stone at the Westford Museum

Reminders of Native American Life in Westford

Sunday, October 29, 2017 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Many Littleton residents have enjoyed resident Bill Vale’s LCTV shows and presentations at LCT events on geology and minerals. If you want to learn more about geology and Native Americans, Bill suggested an upcoming event at the Westford Museum.

The event will feature several speakers and a 1-day display of a spectacular local Native American artifact collection. Visitors are welcome to come and go at any time during the afternoon. The story telling and hands-on history activities are appropriate for children as well as adults. Speakers will include Westford resident Cori Ryan, and Darlene Kascak from the Institute for American Indian Studies in Washington, CT and a member of the Schaghticoke Tribe.

Throughout the afternoon, a special exhibition will be on display upstairs in the Museum. The artifacts, dating as far back as 6000 years ago, were found here in Westford in the 1970s and are held in a private collection. This is the first time they will be on display publicly. The exhibition will also include information on other stone structures in Westford, offering theories about their history, and will encourage visitors to consider their thoughts on the structures.
