HIGHLANDS – Historian and Society member Walter Guenther will direct a tour of the Highlands Historical Collection museum at a meeting of the Highlands Historical Society at the Twin Lights Museum Thursday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
The Society is altering its routine schedule of evening meetings to enable Guenther to explain items in the Highlands collection at the Twin Lights, some of the history behind them, and the importance of preserving them and learning more about the persons who are part of local history.
The meeting will be held at the South Tower of the Museum and will also include a greeting and information from Nicholas Wood, state historian at the Twin Lights.
Attendees at the meeting will have the opportunity to walk through the Museum Galleries at the north end of the state museum, as well as the displays and exhibits both in the Twin Lights museum, the powerhouse where the Fresnel lens is on display, and the grounds at no fee. Those who want to climb one or both towers at the museum can pay the small admission fee to access those two historic sites.
Members are encouraged to bring friends and family members to this meeting to learn more about the role of Highlands in history and the importance of the borough society’s collections.
President Sheila Weinstock will conduct the business meeting, and membership will be available to potential new members.
