Agawam Historical Association:
Thursday, March 16 at 7pm
Our speaker will be Jacqueline T. Lynch, Author of “The Ames Manufacturing Company of Chicopee, Massachusetts: A Northern Factory Town’s Perspective on the Civil War.”
The Ames Company played an important role as an arms manufacturer during the American Civil War and the Northern Civil War experience in the small, but dynamic,
universe of a factory town.
The Agawam Historical Association hosts speakers on a variety of topics at its regular meetings and Annual Banquet. The Association operates the Agawam Historical & Fire House Museum at 35 Elm Street, and the Thomas Smith House (c1757) at 251 North West Street in Feeding Hills.
Whether you’ve lived in town your whole life or just recently moved here, we hope that you will consider joining us. Your dues and your active involvement are urgently needed in our efforts to preserve Agawam’s past for future generations. We thank you for your interest and look forward to your visit. All Association meetings are free and open to the public.
