TLGV February Member Program – Tour and Program at the Tourtellotte Museum

Join us as we enjoy a fascinating program and tour of the Tourtellotte Museum located at the Tourtellotte Memorial High School, thanks to the The Thompson Historical Society.

A compelling story and well told by our hosts…
Learn about Dr. Jacob Francis and Harriett Arnold Tourtellotte, both natives of Thompson, who built the Thompson Memorial High School in 1907-1909 in memory of their two daughters. We’ll hear about the process, now in its seventh year, of restoring the high school and museum.
We’ll tour the Memorial Room, view more than 80 pieces of art on display, and learn about the museum’s extensive restoration of its priceless art collection.

We’ll also tour the Ramsdell Railroad Collection, an extensive archive or railroad photographs and memorabilia.

Refreshments will be served. Donations are encouraged to help defray the cost of opening up the building on a weekend and for the refreshments.
