Louisa May Alcott exhibit open through October

WALPOLE, N.H. — The Walpole Historical Society Museum and Gift Shop are open every Saturday, noon to 4 p.m.; come see the new exhibits and new additions to the Louisa May Alcott exhibit and browse the gift shop.

The main gallery has been transformed into a timeline of over 200 years of Walpole history. Visitors will learn how Walpole evolved from a Native American seasonal fishing encampment in the 1700s and how early settlers transformed it into a prosperous New England village.

The Louisa May Alcott exhibit continues with an additional display that compares Alcott's real Walpole experiences with the drama she wrote about in her famous novel "Little Women." Upstairs is a new exhibit, "When They Were Young," which features children's clothing from the 1800's to the 1960's.

The gift shop is brimming with colorful accessories, hand-sewn table runners, children's toys, books and gift items. Also available are wooden book marks, note cards, candles and much more.

Located at 32 Main St. the Historical Society will open its doors anytime by appointment by calling 603-756-3449.
