Old Houses of Dennis

Saturday, April 11 at 2:00 pm

Phyllis Horton of the Dennis Historical Society creatively presents an illustrated lecture on our Old Houses, both still standing and long gone. This core part of Dennis history shows the wide variety of styles employed through the years. A $5 donation at the door benefits the Dennis Historical Society.

Photo of the Joseph K. Baker homestead, loaned by Pauline Kennedy of Dennis Port in August 2000. This stately home is now gone, but it once stood on the north side of Route 28 in Dennis Port, just east of the intersection with South Street. The barn is still used as a club called The Improper Bostonian.

Mistakes in event emails

We are experiencing a problem with our automatic email notification system. Please check event dates carefully in any emails that you have received recently, as some old event postings have gone out attached to new postings. We are working to diagnose the issue and will hopefully have it resolved shortly.

We are very sorry for any confusion that this has caused those who subscribe to this service for updates on Dennis Public Library events.
