There’s a lot going on at the GBHS Museum and the Wheeler Farmstead, so you can expect to see This ‘n’ That here on the site from time to time.
Wheelchair now available at the Museum
To all our mobility-impaired visitors, we now have a wheelchair at the Museum for use during your visit here. This addition adds another service and makes the Museum truly handicap-accessible.
GBHS chosen to preserve Trout Hatchery Historical Records
In an agreement between the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service and the Massachusetts Historical Commission, the GB Historical Society has been assigned as the designated location for digital photos and Service-produced video filmed at the Berkshire Hatchery located at 240 Hatchery Road in New Marlborough. Multiple buildings at that location are being demolished, so the photos and videos depicting those buildings and structures are historical documentation.
The compact disc containing the digital photographs has arrived at the Museum, and the video will follow once completed. FYI: Colonel William Brown of Newsboy Statue fame was one of the founders of the Fish Hatchery.
Display a Scarecrow in October to Scare Away the Pandemic!
Once again this October, the GB Historical Society is encouraging families across the Berkshires to put up a scarecrow to show solidarity in the fight against the pandemic. Become a symbol of hope!
Imagine a scarecrow on every front porch, front lawn, or business window. Join in the fun by making it a family event with your kids or grandkids. Separately yet together, let’s show the world that we’ll beat this pandemic.
