Historical Society Presents Manning Lecture Tomorrow

I’ve had a couple of posts here about William N. Manning, the Rockport resident in the 1800s who once operated a factory in Millbrook Meadow manufacturing melodeons, a type of organ popular in the 19th century. Tomorrow night, Nov. 8, you will have a chance to learn much more about Manning, when the Sandy Bay Historical Society hosts a lecture about him presented by Debra Legg, a Rockport piano technician and blogger. Not only has Debra extensively researched Manning, but she also actually rebuilds melodeons.

The lecture is at 7:30 p.m. at the Rockport Public Library.
