The monthly meetings of the Pembroke Historical Society will offer an array of programs that will enthrall lovers of local, state, and national history. In putting the roster together Stephen Sanfilippo, PHS program coordinator, sought to schedule outstanding presenters on a variety of topics, including historic photography, subsistence settlement, women’s history, the American Civil War, shore life, and maritime commerce and culture. Presentations, which include lecture, visuals, and discussion, start at or soon after 7:00 PM, following each month’s 6:30 PM business meeting, at the PHS museum, intersection of Front Street and Old County Road, Pembroke. Admission and refreshments are free, and donations to the PHS are welcome.
