The May 3 lecture will be Museum Director Steve Arseneau presenting “The Lee and Beckwith Families and the Lee Mansion in Photographs” at 6:30 p.m. The program is part of the museum’s Spring Lecture Series and is free for museum members, $5 for non-members.
Late in 2016, the museum received as a donation a photo album of the Lee Mansion in Dowagiac, known as the Rockery. The album shows most of the rooms in the house shortly after it was completed and decorated in 1896. Arseneau will also look at the Beckwith and Lee families through its extensive collection of photographs.
