Historic New England’s archive is filled with clues about grown-ups and kids who have lived in our area over the last several hundred years. This program gives you a chance to examine copies of old letters, journals, scrapbooks, and advertisements to learn more about their lives. Then get creative as you design your own projects. Write with a quill pen, make your own card games or dream house scrapbooks, or try various printing techniques.
