We offer no pricey baubles as member incentives, and there will be no 50,000-Watt radio shout-out when your check arrives. After our sincere letter of thanks, over the course of a year you will receive our newsletter, News of the Weeks Brick House & Gardens (now included in the collection of major history/genealogy archives & libraries). See for yourself the quality of this publication: Read sample issues on our Newsletter Archive Page. You'll also receive invitations to meetings, speakers, or events. But your real member benefit is knowing that you are supporting the preservation of a unique architectural treasure --- one situated on a family farm that's now conservation land for public enjoyment. If you are a Weeks descendant, you'll have the added satisfaction of forging a personal connection to the family farmstead --- on any day, from dawn to dusk, you can literally walk in the 17th-century footsteps of Leonard Weeks himself.
Volunteers at the Weeks Brick House and Gardens are always welcome --- and much appreciated. We especially seek volunteers interested in working in our gardens. Contact our office via telephone or e-mail: 603-436-8147; WeeksBrickHouse "at" aol.com.
Annual Meeting Weekends
Our Annual Meeting weekends at the Weeks Brick House & Gardens include guided tours of the family homestead, gardens, and trails, a wine & cheese reception, a featured guest speaker or program, a lunch shared with Weeks family "cousins" from near-and-far, and a business meeting.
The 2016 Annual Meeting (Sept. 10 & 11, 2016) was attended by Weeks descendants and friends from across the continent who learned more about the house and farmstead, and enjoyed the 33 acres of conservation land. Featured this year was a program by board member and museum professional R.W. Bacon entitled "Dazed by Weeks: A Dense and Dazzling History of the Weeks Brick House, Featuring Fascinating Facts, Fuzzly Folklore, and Flabby Fluff." This program included favorite photos of the Weeks Brick House from the archives, but rarely seen in such digitally-projected enormity; news articles and ephemera from the mid-1970s when the farmstead was saved from development; history and trivia quizzes that helped clarify the misinformation and mythology that continue to circulate about the Weeks Brick House; and a collection of photos depicting the broad range of Weeks family descendants, from well-known artists and public servants to the rough-and-tumble northern Vermont mountain men in the presenterís own family.

Watch this space for the dates and latest plans for the 2017 Annual Meeting,
when once again we will welcome descendants, history/architecture enthusiasts, and area friends to join us for tours of the house and grounds, walks on our trails, and special programs.
