The Dover Historical Society is hosting a guided, one-hour tour of the Gropius House in Lincoln on Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. The house was designed by Walter Gropius, one of the most influential architects of the 20th century and founder of the German design school known as Bauhaus, and is on on the National Register of Historic Places. The minimalist home was built by the architect for his family in 1938 when he moved to Massachusetts to teach at Harvard. Tickets for the tour are $10, payable at the door, with lunch to follow at AKA Bistro in Lincoln at 12:30 p.m. Reservations are required; contact Clare Burke at 508-785 -1357 or email@example.com.
