The Southampton Historical Museum challenges you to keep a journal of your day’s activities (the mundane and the thrilling) for 1 whole year! By registering for this program you will be able to take part in a major exhibit, connect with your community, participate in a share-a-thon, and have your journal entered into the Museum’s Archives to be treasured by future generations.

The exhibit will be displayed at the Rogers Mansion in the Spring & Summer of 2016.
