Squam Speaker Series: NH Boat History

Thursday, August 1, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Our Squam Speaker Series is usually held once a month on Wednesday evenings but this month we have two speakers both focused on history. Join us on Thursday, August 1st for a talk by the New Hampshire Boat Museum's Executive Director, Martha Cummings, who will touch upon the history of recreational boating in New Hampshire as well as share the exciting activities that NHBM has for all ages.. New Hampshire has a long history of boating on the state’s fresh waterways, the New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM) actively preserves and shares this history through the Museum’s many programs and exhibits.  Haven’t heard of the New Hampshire Boat Museum before?  Come find out what it's all about.  

About the Speaker:

Martha has over ten years of experience in the museum field.  Her museum work includes managing historic house sites, restoring buildings, collections and non-profit management. She has been executive director of the New Hampshire Boat Museum for a little over a year, starting last May 2018, where she is now learning all about vintage and classic boats and motors! Prior to coming to NHBM, she was the director-curator at the Rufus Porter Museum in Bridgton, Maine where she led the Museum through a major renovation and relocation.
