This summer, the Wenham Museum will be holding a Summer Soirée to celebrate the successes of the last several years:

  • The rapid completion of a $500,000 campaign to create a new, state-of-the-art exhibition on local equestrian history and culture called Equestrian Histories. Event attendees will be the first to see this exhibition, which opens in June 2019.
  • The Patton Family’s generous donation of the Patton Family Archives, valued at $1.9 million, to the Wenham Museum. This vast private collection represents the lives of Joanne Holbrook Patton, Major General George Smith Patton, General George S. Patton, Jr. and their families on the North Shore and beyond.
  • Growth in museum engagement over the last several years, with annual visitation increasing from 22,000 people per year to over 35,000, and over 1,000 member households surpassed in 2018.
  • With our new Strategic Plan, a renewed commitment to local history and community stories through local artifact protection and high-quality programs and exhibits for the museum’s multi-generational audience.

These achievements are the direct result of community support from donors and businesses like you.

Wenham Museum will be transformed through exterior tenting, lighting, flowers and décor for a festive Summer Soirée.  This cocktail affair will feature heavy hors d’oeuvres, a hosted bar, a live screening of the Belmont Stakes, unique auction items, live music, and the opportunity for guests to be among the first to tour the landmark Equestrian Histories exhibition.
