New exhibit to open in Beverly

A new rotating exhibit, Homes of Beverly, will premiere Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Beverly Heritage Center. This exhibit will focus on artifacts that were found at three separate locations in Beverly and highlight local history through archaeological excavation. Homes of Beverly will include photographs of the area, historic houses and the people who lived in them, and artifacts from specific periods in time.

The exhibit will be open to the public during the Heart of a Heritage fundraising dinner at the Beverly Heritage Center. This annual Valentine’s Day celebration features a three-course meal, and will begin with baked brie and berry blue cheese spread, served with assorted crackers, field greens salad with toppings, and home-baked bread with flavored butters. The entree course, served around 7 p.m., will feature seasoned, grilled beef tenderloin from Campbell’s Market, scalloped potatoes, sweet and savory kale, and green bean casserole. Assorted desserts and chocolates will complete the evening, along with coffee, tea, and wine. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

Reservations are encouraged for Heart of a Heritage, with tickets available for $45 per individual or $85 per couple. All proceeds from this popular fundraising event support ongoing programs and continued development of the Beverly Heritage Center.
