Historical Society announces fall season opening

The fall season for the Dover Historical Society has opened at the Society’s museums.

Cary House, located on 107 Dedham St., and the Sawin Museum, located on 80 Dedham St., will continue to be open from each Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. through November 23.

Caryl House, built in 1774, was the home of the Reverend Benjamin Caryl, first minister of Springfield Parish, now Dover. It is furnished to show how Rev. Caryl and his family lived in the 18th Century following the American Revolution.

At the Sawin Museum, some of the displays have been added to since the spring season and visitors are encouraged to observe the development of certain types of military equipment including watches, compasses and maps from the Revolutionary War through WWII.
