The Sesquicentennial of the
Burning of Haymarket
One hundred and fifty years ago, on November 4th, 1862, the town of Haymarket was set ablaze. Homes and livelihoods were destroyed. A young life was lost.
You are invited to mark this event as we keep special hours, opening our doors from 5:00PM-7:00PM on the 4th. The museum shall be lit by candle glow, the bell rung in commemoration and in honor of the citizens who began anew.
Copies of the Transcript of Kurd Baron Veltheim's Court Martial will be available to our visitors. Burning of the Town
