Year In Review‎ > ‎


This year started off with the sudden passing of Ruth Ham.  In her will, Ruth bequeathed to us, her copies of her weekly newspaper column.  We now have this great written history of  the goings-ons of Shapleigh for the past 30+ years. 

Also this year we purchased a few “new” antiques, added lighting to our road sign and had our building sign re-painted.  We are still organizing our inventory, but we have made great progress just this year alone.

We also undertook the task of replicating the original “Boston Post Cane” for  both Acton and Shapleigh.  We  even had the head of the cane hand engraved the same way it was done 100 years ago!  The Shapleigh Boston Post Cane will be presented at a special ceremony at the society this summer.  You can find lots more information on this as well as all our other scheduled events in the section "Calendar of Events 2014" on the left and if you “like” us on our Facebook page, we will keep you up-to-date of our scheduled activities. 

We continue to seek out new ways of  “Preserving Our Heritage”   and as always, thank you for your continued support.
