2018 Community Calendars, $10
The 2018 Hopkinton Historical Society calendar features 12 gorgeous images taken in 2002 and 2003 by award-winning photographer and Hopkinton resident Bill Finney (1931-2016). In the fall of 2001, the Society asked if Finney would consider spending a year capturing on film the people, places, and events of the town of Hopkinton. He spent nearly two years on the project, known as “The New Century Collection.” Fifty images were selected to become part of the Society’s permanent collection, and he generously donated an additional 13 images. In addition to “The New Century Collection,” the Hopkinton Historical Society is fortunate to have many other images by Finney in its collection, including photographs of historical markers and portraits of local residents.
Pop Up Exhibit at the Society: "A Story
about my Doll made
by Tasha Tudor"
Our new pop-up exhibit features a doll and clothing that were all handmade by well-known children’s illustrator and author Tasha Tudor. The doll, named Alexandra, was made for former Hopkinton resident Lucy Schade Jackson in 1954. Included in the display are these three absolutely charming quarter-sized Valentine’s Day cards made by Tasha Tudor.
We’d love to know what you collect and if you’re interested
in displaying your collection at the Society!
