2017 has been an active year at the Faulkner Homestead and Jones Tavern with many collaborators. Some joined us for the first time this year, and others returned to take part in the Iron Work Farm's programs and initiatives that they've been part of in the past.
We extend our deepest thanks to the Acton Minutemen, Acton Fire Department, Acton Community Preservation Fund, Acton Land Stewards, ACton Open Studios, ABRHS and RJ Grey students, Nashoba Valley Weavers' Guild, and the citizens of Acton and surrounding communities. Your support makes every educational program, every event, and every act of preservation at our two historic properties possible.
Thank you in advance for joining, or for renewing your membership for 2018 and for generously donating.
Let's continue to keep Acton's past alive in the present!
Please help us meet our goals: join, or renew your membership, or make a tax-deductible donation today (click on the donate button below).
