Taken By Storm: The 1938 Hurricane At Gilmanton Historical Society September 26

“Taken by Storm” the 1938 Hurricane will be the topic at the Gilmanton Historical Society on Tuesday, September 26, at Old Town Hall in Gilmanton Iron Works


The Gilmanton Historical Society will offer a program on the great hurricane of 1938 on Tuesday evening, September 26, 7:30 pm, at Old Town Hall in Gilmanton Iron Works.  The topic is especially timely given this year’s rash of storms affecting the southern US.  Social hour and refreshments begin at 7 pm and the program begins promptly at 7:30.  The Society’s museum, in the basement of Old Town Hall, will be open at 7 pm.


Lourdes Aviles, Professor of Meteorology at Plymouth State University will discuss the 1938 hurricane and the devastating effects it had on New England. She has written a book, Taken By Storm, 1938, on the subject.


The Society’s Museum in Old Town Hall is open every 2nd and 4th Saturday morning, 10 am to noon, September through May. The programs are free and open to the public.  Donations to support the work of the Society are always welcome.
