General Membership Meeting — at George School
October 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Jack Foster Murals at George School
The October meeting of the Newtown Historic Association will be held on Monday, October 15th at 7:30 PM at the George School, Rte. 413 Newtown. In 1933-34 Newtown native John Foster painted a series of six murals illustrating the history of Newtown for the bar in the White Hall Hotel. Over the next 83 years the murals survive a major fire, a three decade stint on the walls of a local antiques shop, to now finding a permanent home in the atrium of McFeely Hall, home of the history department, at George School.
The presentation will be give by David B. Long who has been the official Archivist at George School since 2008. He is responsible for maintaining the Quaker school’s historical documents, non-digital photographs, and related objects.
McFeely Hall (built originally as McFeely Library in the mid-60s) is #15 on this online campus map. Although there are
some parking lots behind Main, the school would like most people to park in the big lot in front of the new Fitness & Athletic Center off Farm Lane and walk up to McFeely. This lot is also the lot one would use for the Meetinghouse or the Anderson Library.
