Join the curator or Fruilands Museum, Shana Dumont Garr, to view and learn about the books, letters, and other materials that were a part of the exhibition Literary Spirit of Fruitlands Museum and The Old Manse. As part of the exhibition that just ended at Fruitlands Museum, thay are about to return to the archives for safekeeping.  Take advantage of this special opportunity to have a close look at inscriptions in books owned by Revs. Emerson and Ripley, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Sarah Alden Bradford Ripley, and other luminaries who resided in or visited the Old Manse in the 1700's and 1800's.  Hear stories about how these objects inform our understanding of their lives, ideas, and influences.
