May is Preservation Month

2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War. DCR’s theme War and Peace highlights the legacy of war preserved in the Commonwealth’s parks. From a Civil War camp at Brook Farm, to the WWII towers at Horseneck Beach and Halibut Point, programs will explore the role of the Commonwealth in American defense, at times of peace, and the commemoration of our war veterans.

DCR is committed to preserving the legacy of Massachusetts’ history reflected in the state parks. From Native American sites to designed gardens, DCR’s historic properties exhibit centuries of human ingenuity in adapting the land for everyday life. Preservation Month is a time to acknowledge our shared cultural heritage and DCR’s work to preserve the past.  -more-
