Methuen Museum of History is located at 37 Pleasant St., Methuen
Over the course of the last few years, the Officers and Directors of the Methuen Historical Society have discussed our desire to revitalize and expand our organization. Although our community has a truly unique historical heritage, it's increasingly a challenge to motivate our friends and neighbors to become involved in its protection and preservation. This challenge is certainly not unique to Methuen.
Members of the board are considering a re-brand of our organization by changing our name and logo. The hope is to present a more modern and inclusive vision for current and prospective members. To that end, we are proposing the name, 'Historic Methuen', to replace our Methuen Historical Society name, with the tagline, 'Let's Make History Together!'
Our aim is to preserve the traditions of the Methuen Historical Society and focus attention on our goals for the Methuen Museum of History, and on building a more vibrant organization that protects and builds on our rich history.
We are inviting all Methuen Historical Society members to vote to accept or reject the proposed name change. Members must vote in person. Join us on Thursday evening, October 19th at 6:30 PM at the Methuen Museum of History (the Tenney Gate House), 37 Pleasant Street, Methuen
In addition to changing the name, these proposed bylaw amendments are intended to improve the operation of the organization for the future. To assist you in evaluating this proposal, we have prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions that we hope will be helpful.
Should you have any questions, please contact me at 978-683-2252.
The board and I hope to see you at our Special Meeting on Thursday, October 19th.
