Town Historian's Annual Lecture

  • Town Historian’s Annual Lecture: ‘A Night At The Nickelodeon,’ Monday

    Before it was a television channel, the word “nickelodeon” meant a performance that cost a nickel: juke box, player piano, and especially a movie theater. On Monday, January 12, at 7:30 pm, Town Historian Daniel Cruson will give his annual lecture, this year looking at “A Night At The Nickelodeon.”

    The program will take place in the lower meeting room of C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street.
