You are invited to join the Williamstown Historical Museum on Saturday, May 29, at 11 a.m. via Zoom webinar for a lecture on the several Williamstown meetinghouses, presented by Pat Leach.  In this webinar, viewers will learn more about the history and architecture of the Williamstown meetinghouse from its original one room structure in what is now Field Park to its white clad building (the First Congregational Church) on Main Street.  Viewers will learn about how the meetinghouse has served as a gathering place for important town and college activities since the 1700s and about the  building’s dramatic architectural changes.  This lecture about a striking and significant Williamstown building is not to be missed.  Please join us!
