WORCESTER - The Worcester Historical Museum is celebrating the 250th anniversary of the Salisbury Mansion with a series of events starting this weekend.
The museum was constructed in 1772 for Stephen Salisbury near what is now Lincoln Square. The mansion was moved to its current location at 40 Highland St. in 1929.
Over the years, the mansion was restored to the 1830s to reflect the time when widow Elizabeth Tuckerman Salisbury lived in it.
In 1984, the mansion was open to the public and is the city's only historical house museum and WHM's largest artifact.
Here is the list of events celebrating the Salisbury Mansion anniversary:
Sunday, Sept. 25 - Afternoon Tours of the Mansion/Celebrating the Birthday of Stephen Salisbury 1
Thursday, Sept. 29 - Candelight tour of the mansion
Saturday, Oct. 1, Oct. 29 and Nov. 12 - Revolutionary Walking Tours
Saturday, Oct. 15 - Sudbury Minutemen Reenactment and Cooking Demonstration
