WELLESLEY, Mass. - The Davis Museum and Cultural Center
at Wellesley College recently earned top billing for "Museum--Regional
Favorites" in the Community Newspaper Company's Readers'
Choice Awards 2002. The campus itself earned silver for
"Place to Take Visitors--Regional Favorite," just behind
Boston's Arnold Arboretum.
Two other parts of the college received top rankings within
the Town of Wellesley: Wellesley College Theatre was the
top choice for "Place to See Theatre," and Neohoiden Golf
Club was the first choice for a local golf course.
Although not a scientific research poll, the annual Readers'
Choice survey is, according to the newspaper, an opportunity
for readers "to give a vote of thanks and congratulations
to some of the people and establishments who bring outstanding
service and value to their lives." Survey results can be
found on the web at http://www.townonline.com/choices/.
The Davis Museum and Cultural Center and its programs are
open to the public free of charge. Its exhibitions and programs
serve both the campus community and the public and are known
for their innovations and fresh approach to art. The Museum
is open every day except Monday. Free parking is available
in the Service Lot west of the Museum. Information on hours,
exhibitions, and directions are available at 781-283-2051

Wellesley College owns and maintains the Nehoiden Golf
Course, a nine-hole course located on Washington Street.
The oldest private nine-hole course in the country, Nehoiden
is noted for its beauty and serenity and for a course that
challenges good players and can be enjoyed by average players
as well. Open from April through November, the course is
available to Wellesley College students, faculty, and staff,
and a limited number of Wellesley residents. For more information,
