What’s a Lynn Legacy?

What’s a Lynn Legacy?  Someone who has built a business or a family in Lynn and is part of the fabric of the community. We celebrated these legacies at the Lynn Museum on Friday, May 14, 2010.

As part of our fundraising plan to match the $283,000 Challenge Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Lynn Legacies will honor donors and celebrate their contributions to the Museum and to Lynn.

Funds raised by the Museum will be matched dollar for dollar by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and will enable the Museum to develop interactive exhibitions to attract a new generation of students and families…making history come alive.
