We are very appreciative of the overwhelming response we have received to attend the April 10 Annual Spring Meeting at Winnekenni Castle in Haverhill. Since we are expecting such a large audience, we wanted to share some tidbits to fully prepare you for our morning of engagement:
1) Carpool! Please carpool – we have more RSVPs than any other previous Annual Meeting – parking and seating is limited.
2) Parking: Please drive all the way to the top and park in the designated lots near the castle, not along the roadway leading to it. This causes serious access problems in the event of an emergency.
3) Please wear comfortable shoes – in inclement weather (or following inclement weather) the terrain will be muddy and wet.
About Winnekenni Castle
Dr. James R. Nichols, a local physician and inventor, built the Castle in 1873-1875 as a summer home at this farm which he named Winnekenni. The idea for the original castle came from England. The Castle was sold to the city in 1895. In 1967, after a devastating fire destroyed the aging building, a group of citizens formed the Winnekenni Foundation, which is still in existence today. Its goal was to completely refurbish the interior of the building, and make it and its surrounding grounds available to the public for cultural and educational events.
