The History of the 1877 Archer House: A Program with Susan Hvistendahl

The Entertainment Guide's own Susan Hvistendahl conducted a fascinating talk on the history of the Archer House at the Northfield Public Library on September 9th. Space was limited and not everyone who wanted to attend was able to get a seat. The good news is that the presentation was recorded and will premiere on Northfield Public Broadcasting (Channel 187) at 6pm on Friday, September 24th! You'll also be able to see the presentation here at that time, so check back on Friday.
