On Thursday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m., the Cushing Historical Society hosts a program at their meeting house on Hathorne Point Road, highlighting several of Cushing’s older houses.

The program was inspired by ancient photographs from the society’s extensive photographic archives. Recent updated photos by George Hoyt will emphasize and explore several changing and enduring structures over the last 200 years. Several present owners, who have updated and restored their homes are expected to add their experiences. The program is free, and the public is welcome to attend.

Two presenters will share the evening’s discussion. Jeannette Chapman is author of three books about the six generations of her relatives to live on Brookfield Farm, their Cushing homestead. Allison Brown is an active member of the society, who has chaired the Brad Becket Memorial Fund for several years. Each year the fund donates money to Cushing teens who are pursuing further education after graduating high school.

George Hoyt, a prolific photographer, who calls himself an amateur, has recently published a photography book on the Horses of Cushing.
