Historical Society honors curator Priscilla Weston
The Temple Historical Society honored longtime member and Society curator Priscilla Weston for her dedication and tireless efforts at the society’s annual dinner held at Timberdoodle Club on June 18.
Weston, who is known in the area as one of the six authors of Temple’s History, has also been a proponent for The Glassworks archeological dig, and the town’s last remaining one-room schoolhouse, Schoolhouse No. 6. She was also instrumental in the curation of the highly successful N.H. Glassmakers Exhibit at the Peterborough Historical Society, which ran 2010 to 2011.
Philip Lauriat, president of the society, recounted a few anecdotes about his first meetings with Weston before turning the podium over to her. He later presented her with a framed selection of glass shards from the Glassworks site.
More than 65 people attended the event. For more information, see templenh.org/community-organizations/temple-historical.
