BRENTWOOD —The Brentwood Historical Society has invited Michael Bruno to be guest speaker on Thurs., June 13, 7:00 p.m. at the Museum, 140 Crawley Falls Road.
He published a book last year titled “Cruising New Hampshire History: A Guide to New Hampshire Roadside Historical Markers”. It has struck a chord with many people who have wanted to know more about the markers in their town and others in the state.
Born in Tilton and now living in Bethlehem, Michael served in the Army for 23 years and is now a JROTC Army instructor at White Mountains Regional High School in Whitefield. He was always interested in New Hampshire history, but was surprised to discover there was so little known about the stories behind the 257 markers that have been installed in the past 60 years. After many months of research, his 564-page paperback was published in May 2018. It is now available in many bookstores.
His program at the Museum on June 13 is free and open to the public. For more information, please leave a message at the Museum by calling 603-642-8944, or visit www.brentwoodnhhistory.org.
Museum’s New Open Hours: The Historical Society will continue its new schedule of open hours on the first Saturday of each month, April through October. The Museum will be open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on June 1, July 6, August 3, September 7, and October 5. All are invited to come and view the exhibits and browse in its library of books and scrapbooks. Museum volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and show you around.
