he Society’s outreach programs have made its mission tangible and relevant to audiences throughout its history. Cabinet objects drew early visitors to Antiquarian Hall. Other items have been exhibited off site--at the 1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia and the Grolier Club in 1967 and 2012, for example. Books were researched and written by hundreds of authors—Esther Forbes among them. Scholars, artists, and writers continually benefit from the library collections and its fellowship programs to conduct research for books and other works that frequently earn national awards. The Society also offers lectures, seminars and conferences, programs for teachers, and a rich website. This learned society has become widely recognized as a national treasure.
