Do you enjoy vintage photographs, private diaries, and dusty tomes? The NSLM’s library secrets will be revealed in this special program taking place in the library’s lower level. The lower level houses some of NSLM’s rarest items, held in the F. Ambrose Clark Rare Book Room and Archives Room. From 20th century memoirs to 18th century manuscripts, get an exclusive view of letters and papers from some of the most notable equestrians of yesteryear with John Connolly, NSLM’s George L. Ohrstrom, Jr. Head Librarian. What will you uncover?
The Legends by Lanternlight series features interpreters in period-dress giving first-person vignettes of life and history in the Mosby Heritage Area. The Nov. 3 installment is titled “Friends, Guerrillas, and Heroes.” Participants will view the Civil War experience of Lincoln (formerly known as Goose Creek) and how the war affected life in this Quaker community. As always, Legends by Lanternlight will include some great storytelling, and work to raise funds for educational programming within the Heritage Area.

You will learn how to make pumpkin cheesecake, peppermint chocolate fat bombs, and even a loaf of bread!
