The Drew Archival Library of the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society is pleased to announce a new exhibit.  Memories of Summers Past: Images from Camp Twin Oaks (1934-1978) showcases photographs and ephemera from Camp Twin Oaks, an African-American summer camp located on the Duxbury/Kingston town line. 

The Camp was established by three sisters, Ella (Lewis) Woodbury, Beulah (Lewis) Fogg and Lillian Mae (Lewis) Hayes and their husbands. When it opened in 1934, it was the only vacation destination on the South Shore catering exclusively to African-Americans.  Guests travelled from Boston, New York, Chicago and even South Carolina to enjoy the hospitality of the Lewis sisters and to take part in summer activities.  

The photographs in the exhibit are from the collection of Delores Nevils, grand-niece of the founders, and former employee of the Camp.  The exhibit is free and will run through mid-October. The Drew Archival Library is located at 147 St. George Street and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
