Ye Old Yellow Meeting House is one of the oldest buildings in the town of Dracut Massachusetts. It was first constructed in 1794, and resides at the geographical center of the town. Over the centuries, this meeting house has been a place for the community to coalesce for town meetings, town functions, and as a congregational church. The OYMH is owned by Christ Church United (CCU), a congregational church, whom are stewards of this historical building. To revive the OYMH's heritage, and benefit the community, CCU is sponsoring a series of education events and fun children's events.

December 17, 2020 at 7pm: History of Dracut Part 1
Presented by local author Rebecca Duda
Join us on Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/98956838685
Dracut was officially incorporated as a town on February 26, 1701. Back when Massachusetts was a British colony, long before the Declaration of Independence was signed, decades before George Washington was born, when we lived as settlors amongst the native Americans.
Dracut has a long and fascinating history, and Rebecca Duda is a local expert.
Rebecca Duda gave us a wonderful presentation last year on the early history of our town, and answered a range of questions.
We hope you can join us for what will certainly be another interesting journey into our past.
For children and youth, this is a great opportunity to get them interested in learning history. There is nothing like realizing that they are surrounded by real pieces of American history right here in Dracut to generate interest.
Be sure to check out the Dracut Historical Society on Lakeview Ave and see their amazing collection of artifacts.
Rebecca Duda is the author of 3 books on the history of Dracut, available on Amazon:
Hope to see you on Zoom for this live event!
