FILM SCREENING The Durant-Kenrick Homestead: A House of Many Stories
The Durant-Kenrick Homestead: A House of Many Stories
Built in 1734 and continuously occupied for nearly 275 years, the Durant-Kenrick House is Newton’s connection to many pivotal events of American history. This new documentary by award-winning historical documentarian Joe Hunter tells the story of the house and its occupants. Through the stories of the house’s residents, we wrestle with the fundamental questions they spent their lives answering: What is liberty? What is our responsibility to defend it? Who is a citizen? Following the showing, Historic Newton Director Cindy Stone and other project representatives will offer more insight into the history of the house and discuss its current transformation into an educational center. Co-Sponsored by Historic Newton and the Newton Free Library. At the Newton Free Library, 330 Homer Street. Free.
|Where||Newton Free Library 330 Homer St, Newton Center, MA 02459|
