The latest book from the Boston & Maine Railroad Historical Society, "Queen City Rails: Manchester's Railroads 1965 – 1990," will be the topic of a lecture and book signing at the Millyard Museum on June 1 at 11 a.m.

The book tells the story of the railroads in and around Manchester in that crucial quarter-century, when Manchester was undergoing a transition from a gritty, industrial mill town to the modern city it is today.

Scores of rare photographs provide an in-depth look as the railroad went from an institution connected with daily life in Manchester to a modern curiosity for most. The presentation by author Rick Kfoury will feature information from the book as well as scores of photos, some of which did not end up in the book and have not been displayed publicly before.

The lecture and book signing are included with admission to the Millyard Museum. To RSVP, call 622-7531 or write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

                                            Moxie cover  The phrase "He's got a lot of moxie!" is taken to mean that one has nerve, vigor, and grit. Learn all about it when local author Merrill Lewis comes to the Millyard Museum on June 8 at 11 a.m. to discuss his new book, “Moxie!”

Other than native New Englanders, most Americans are generally quite unaware that Moxie is a bittersweet patent medicine turned soda pop.

This soda pop was originally called Moxie Nerve Food, which was guaranteed to cure nervous exhaustion and a host of associated ailments.

This book chronicles Moxie's rich history – it was first bottled in 1885 – and its brilliant marketing breakthroughs, as well as some corporate misfortunes and rebounds along the way.

The authors are card-carrying members of the New England Moxie Congress, including Dennis Sasseville and Manchester’s own Merrill Lewis. The book talk and signing are included with admission to the Millyard Museum, and will include free samples of Moxie, courtesy of Coca-Cola of Northern New England.

The lecture and book signing are included with admission to the Millyard Museum. To RSVP, call 622-7531 or write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

amcg1130Bowlers, Derbies, Fedoras, Oh My! Whatever style you prefer, hats have always played an important part in our lives. They cover our heads when it rains or snows, they signify a social group or profession we belong to, and most importantly, they complete an outfit.

In the Exhibit “Hats Off to Manchester”, the Manchester Historic Association digs deep into its collection to bring you a special collection of hats made, worn or bought in Manchester. Take a stroll down memory lane as we bring stories, photographs and of course hats from some of Elm Street’s most beloved stores.  Come see hat boxes and display photos from Pariseau’s, J.W. Hills, and M.A. Barton’s just to name a few.

On exhibit through August 1.
