As part of Beverly Public Library’s Monday Mornings adult lecture series, Archer will share photos of his own travels to both destinations.

Did you know Ipswich has connections to President Abraham Lincoln? Learn more at noon when Ipswich Museum member and seasonal weekend manager Bob Purzycki presents “Ipswich and Its Connections to President Lincoln,” which complements the museum’s current winter exhibit titled “Ipswich and the Civil War.”  The lecture is part of the museum’s monthly Brown Bag Lunch series, and will be held at 54 South Main St., Ipswich. Admission is free for museum members and Ipswich seniors, and $5 for nonmembers. For more information, call 978-356-2811, email, or visit
