Award-winning local historians Nathaniel Lee, Donald Hakenson and Carl Sell from the Franconia Museum will present a free lecture about the early history of the Burgundy neighborhood.  Come hear about the colonial-era merchants that lived at Burgundy!  Hear the account of Tom Fuller, the renowned "Alexandria Calculator" and see General Howard's encampment of Union troops in the Civil War!  Follow the earliest days of Burgundy Farm Country Day School ... and so much more!  The lecture will take place in the Helen Wilson Community Room, the first door on the right when you enter the building.  Pictures and artifacts from the Burgundy area will be on display across the hall inside the Franconia Museum.
