Virginia Rundell

Committee Chair. Virginia Quinn Rundell has been involved for many years in the Boston design community, engaged in marketing and business development roles for several prominent architecture and engineering firms, and involved with design-related non-profit organizations. She is currently pursuing a graduate degree in library science while interning at the Boston Athenaeum. In her spare time, she warbles with the Revels Singers community chorus.

Jean Horne

My interest in the Pierce House began to surface after our son-in-law’s parents hosted a beautiful rehearsal dinner under tents in May of 1992. The evening was perfect, showing off the Pierce House and Lincoln at their best. A few years later I became a committee member, providing an opportunity to contribute my volunteer efforts to one of Lincoln’s treasures, a commitment I continue to value.

Lucia Todd MacMahon

Lucia MacMahon grew up in Lincoln and has lived there most of her life. Her family roots go back four generations. She deeply values efforts devoted to the preservation of historic town sites, and the importance working together to help maintain and respect the unique, small-town character of Lincoln, its traditions and its legacies. She has served on the Pierce House Committee for several years. Lucia feels it is a privilege to be a steward of one of Lincoln's most treasured icons.

Anne Crosby

Anne Crosby has been a member of the Pierce House Committee for only two years. She has lived in Lincoln for 28 years and has volunteered on numerous town committees but feels honored at this point to be a steward of the Pierce House Property. It is a wonderful town resource that should be preserved for generations to come.
