Worcester Treasures

Worcester Treasures

October 1, 2013 - October 4, 2014

300 years ago Jonas Rice and his family settled atop Union Hill (near the intersection of Plantation Street and Massasoit Road). While the exact date of Jonas Rice’s arrival in October of 1713 is unknown this settlement would eventually grow into the Worcester we know today. 

Worcester Historical Museum is celebrating the 300th Anniversary of Worcester’s permanent settlement with Worcester Treasures. After 138 years  as the keeper of Worcester history the museum is selecting 13 artifacts from its exhaustive collection to put on exhibit this unique format. Worcester Treasures will feature one artifact every month from October of 2013 through October of 2014. Each of the artifacts selected will explore different themes from immigration to industry.
