Where can you visit two different centuries at once?
Bob Murray of Epsom, a noted collector of early recorded music, will “deejay” a concert of original ‘teens recordings played on his 1911 Victor phonograph. He will feature performances by John Philip Sousa, Victor Herbert, Enrico Caruso and Sir Harry Lauder, as well as early hits by composers Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern. An exhibition of period dance steps will open the floor for visitors to dance to the period music. Meanwhile, traditional toys and games will be available to entertain the children.
The Daniel Webster Birthplace is a State Historic Site operated by the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation. The Daniel Webster Birthplace Living History Project is a private non-profit educational program dedicated to enhancing understanding of eighteenth century life and sponsored by the Franklin Historical Society. The living history program is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 pm, through Labor Day. The site is located on North Road, one-half mile off Route 127 in West Franklin.
