Martha Willson Diary Exhibit
October 3- November 4, 2017
In May 2017, 11th graders at Keene High School transcribed the 1850 diary of a teenager from Keene, Martha Willson. Interactive panels created by the students showcase their ability to analyze historical text, interpret local history, and engage with the past. Come see the diary of this 18 year old girl. Learn more about daily life in 1850s Keene. Support our community youth as they create their own sense of history. Exhibit design elements and supporting interactives are the work of student interns from Keene State College and Smith College.
