Old Planters Reunion

A biennial gathering of those descended from Beverly's 17th century families, and those interested in that history.  The event is centered around the Balch Family Meeting, which invites descendants of John Balch, one of Beverly's first residents, to stay connected to the Balch House and contribute to its support.   Other programs during the reunion include lectures, walking tours, tours of privately-owned First Period homes, and research and networking opportunities.

Adults

This 3rd grade
program begins with a discussion of early European
settlement on the North Shore, focusing on the history of the 17thcentury
Balch House and an archaeological dig done at the site in 1998. Archaeological
terms and procedures are explained. Small groups of students then perform
their own "digs" in "pits" provided by the museum educator.
Each "pit" contains an actual historic artifact that can be examined,
identified in resource material, and dated. This program includes a visit to
the Balch House.

An ongoing
exhibit on Beverly's early history, which features an original landscape
painting commissioned to represent life in Beverly during that period.After the tumultuous years of the second half
of the 17th century, filled as they were with political upheaval, Indian wars,
and culminating in the witchcraft crises of 1692, the new century must have seemed
to local residents like entering a calm port. Although religion remained an
important aspect of colonial life, the power of the church in civic life was on
the wane. Beverly’s economy remained focused on maritime trades and
agriculture, but new trades emerged during the period. Clockmakers, cabinet
makers, silversmiths and other artisans created objects for an emerging
well-to-do class. A spirit of change and possibility emerged in the 18th
century, with profound consequences for our local community and America.
