Let’s Play the Millyard Museum Wall of Fame Game

Who do you think about when you think about Manchester?

That’s the question that confronted the staff at the Millyard Museum when they set about creating an interactive exhibit called the Manchester Wall of Fame.

The task simply required taking 11,000 thousand years of history – that’s how long people have lived in the area we now know as Manchester – and distilling it down to just 48 names and faces.

Through media outreach, the general public was invited to make nominations, and the finished display is sure to include names you know and names you don’t know, but each is deserving of a place on the wall.

Join AARP NH and John Clayton, executive director of the Manchester Historic Association, for a free, interactive webinar on February 11 at 10 am. We’ll play a game of “Who’s Who” on the Manchester Wall of Fame.

Preregistration is required at: https://aarp.cvent.com/events/aarp-nh-millyard-museum-series-the-founders-february-11-2021-10-am/event-summary-77551f6fac8641e8b2ff1bb5d1349ce0.aspx

Will you know all 48 faces on the wall?
