EXHIBIT

Where Has It Gone?

Our Fall 2019 exhibit will showcase photographs of some of these places and will be on display in the Procter Gallery until November 16, 2019. 

Over the years, a number of buildings and other sites in the Stockbridge area either have changed beyond recognition or no longer exist.  A few examples include: Heaton Hall, which was torn down after it no longer filled a need; Shadowbrook (pictured right), replaced after being lost to fire; and the Glendale Store (pictured left), which closed after the roof collapsed.  Others, such as the old Town Hall, remain but were rotated to show a different façade.The Museum & Archives is pleased to announce its Fall 2019 exhibit, Where Has It Gone?

 

A Stroll Through the Stockbridge Cemetery

Self Guided Brochure

For our patrons and Library guests, we have created a new brochure that provides a self-guided exploration of the original cemetery.  They are intended for any individuals or families who care to learn more about how Stockbridge residents have been involved beyond the town borders. The brochures are available at the circulation desk in the Library and in the Museum & Archives beginning October 1, 2019.  Topics include Early Settlers, Medicine, and the Arts plus the Sedgwick Pie and the Field Family. 

Inaugural Stroll

October 5, 2019 at 2:15 p.m.

We invite you to join us for an inaugural, semi-self guided stroll through the Stockbridge Cemetery on Saturday, October 5th at 2:15 p.m.  Pick up a copy of the new brochure and reserve a place for the Stroll on the 5th.  The first twenty people to sign up will be assigned one of the graves to find.  During the program, they will be the reader for that former resident.
