    Charlie Lynes honored at July 4th parade
    The Barkhamsted Historical Society marched in the Independence Day parade in Pleasant Valley.  During and after the parade we honored Charlie Lynes, former Historical Society president and long time board member.  Charlie has played a critical role in Society activities for a number of years.  He is responsible for getting our Schoolhouse restoration project reenergized in the early 1990s, and worked tirelessly to keep the Hitchcock Chair Museum operating for a number of years.  For years Charlie has been in charge of our flea market events, a major fundraising effort for the Historical Society.  Charlie has logged countless hours of volunteer work during the restoration of the Squire's Tavern.  His hard work and commitment have long been appreciated by the Historical Society.

    Open House at Squire's Tavern - July 4, 2006
    Hope you were able to stop by  to see the progress we have made restoring the Squire's Tavern during our July 4, 2006 open house.  At the conclusion of the Independence day parade in Pleasant Valley we opened the Tavern for visitors who took advantage of guided tours and a number of photos on display.
