Description:In 2008, Ron Nunn received a grant from the Paul Peck Institute for Humanities at Montgomery College to do research on artifacts residing in the Cohasset Massachussetts Historical Society. This happens to be where John Smith landed 400 years ago in 1614 and met the Conahasset Indians for which the town is named. The artifacts in the Cohasset Historical Society cover the entire period of human habitation in New England from the Paleo-Indian phase up to contact with John Smith.
How to get there: The Sumner School is located at 1201 17th St NW (corner of 17th St and M St NW). The entrance to the meeting area is on 17th St under the black metal stairway. Directions from Metro Red Line: From Farragut North station, take either L St exit, walk one block east to 17th St, turn left and walk 2 blocks north. Enter the building through the double doors under the black metal staircase. MEETING ROOM: Rotating Gallery G-4 (ground floor).
