The Depot Transformation: A New Center for Lexington's History
The Depot Transformation: A New Center for Lexington's History

April 19, 2025, marks the 250th anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and the first shots of a revolution that changed us forever.  Lexington Historical Society is in a unique position to present the story of the birth of our nation through its three historic house museums, all significant in this early history.  Now, we also have an opportunity to share all of the rich and diverse arc of Lexington’s history with a new initiative, the Depot Transformation.

Interim Executive Director Anne Lee will present an illustrated talk, outlining the Historical Society's story, with a focus on the exciting changes ahead for our fourth building, the 1846 railroad Depot in the center of town. 

Anne Lee was born and raised in Switzerland, studied art history and languages in the U.S., and settled in

Lexington in 1994 where she and her husband raised two sons.  Anne developed the volunteer program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; managed public programs at Historic New England; and was research director at Vose Galleries of Boston.  As a free-lance art historian, she conducted appraisals and research of private collections, taught classes at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education, and most recently co-authored four contemporary art books and wrote a number of articles for arts magazines.  Giving back to the Lexington community is important to her: she has been a long-time member of the Garden Club and former co-president; organized silent auctions for the Lexington Education Foundation; developed an artist-in-residence program at Cary Library; and served as President and Program Committee Chair of the Lexington Historical Society.  She is currently its Interim Executive Director.
