On Tuesday, May 20, The West End Museum will premiere a new exhibit, The Elizabeth Peabody House, in the Members’ Gallery. The exhibit showcases this treasured social service institution of the West End that has served immigrant families for generations, providing spaces for education, recreation and more. The opening reception takes place at 6:30 p.m. on May 20, and the show runs through Saturday, July 19. The reception and show are free and open to the public during museum hours (T-F 12 am-5pm / Sat 11am-4pm).

The exhibit surveys the history and prominence of The Elizabeth Peabody House, one of Boston’s first settlement houses. Original schedules and annual reports detailing the institution’s programs will be on display as well as photographs of its most beloved clubs—including its nationally recognized science club—and its important social service work, which included the country’s first pasteurized milk stations and a free school lunch program. The show emphasizes the particular sympathy and progressive ideology of the settlement workers, and the impact that the workers and the immigrants had on one another.
