The Hamiltons of Lake Calhoun

November 5 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Most known for Widow Hamilton’s guest house overlooking Lake Calhoun (now called Bde Maka Ska), where Henry David Thoreau stayed in June 1861, members of the Hamilton family lived at times on both the south and west shores of the lake for more than 40 years. Explore this untold history of early days before the lake was dredged and the shoreline filled. Local historian Peter Sussman will lead the discussion on this much-speculated local history topic.

Rescheduled from the original date of October 15. Note the new location.
