Wednesday in Enfield: A presentation on Noyes Academy, a 19th-century integrated school that was destroyed by a white mob

Dan Billin is giving the presentation at the Enfield Community Building at 7 p.m. From today’s Valley News:

The story of the short-lived and ill-fated Noyes Academy — an integrated school that opened in Canaan more than 120 years prior to the Little Rock Nine, in 1835, only to be destroyed months later by an angry mob that dragged the building a half-mile down the road from its foundation — is one that history has largely forgotten.

After years of defying a trend that all but eliminated the video rental store sector in the Upper Valley and beyond, Movie Market’s long-running show is drawing to a close.
