Unveiling of Edmund Fowle House & Museum sign and artifact wall labels
Sunday, October 17, 2021
1:00 - 4:00 PM
Edmund Fowle House
28 Marshall Street
Watertown, MA 02472
A new exterior sign identifying the Edmund Fowle House & Museum as the headquarters of the Historical Society of Watertown, founded in 1888, has been installed. The painted, wooden sign, which will be unveiled at 1:00 PM, incorporates green, cream and yellow hues similar to the paint colors used on the exterior of the house itself.
After the unveiling of the sign, guests will be welcomed into the Fowle House for a self-guided tour of the artifacts on display, complete with new wall labels created using funds from a generous, late-2019 grant from the Watertown Community Foundation. The new labels are intended to communicate the significance of each object to museum visitors through historical facts and stories.
MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED FOR THOSE ENTERING THE EDMUND FOWLE HOUSE.
