Bellingham’s Taft Museum Re-Open
By J.D. O’Gara
After extensive renovations, the Bellingham Historical Commission (https://www.bellinghamma.org/historical-commission ) reopened the Ernest A. Taft Jr. Historical Museum on May 22nd, prior to the town of Bellingham’s annual Memorial Day parade and celebration. The ribbon-cutting ceremony drew a small crowd, members of the town and Historical Commission, as well as Representatives Shawn Dooley and Michael Soter.
The Bellingham Historical Museum is a repository for artifacts, documents, photographs and personal collections that help others to envision and understand the lifestyle and concerns of the citizens of Bellingham since the incorporation in 1719. If you wish to donate items to the museum please complete and return the Artifact/Material Donation Application Form, found at https://www.bellinghamma.org/sites/g/files/vyhlif2796/f/uploads/donor_form.pdf .
The museum will be open Saturdays, June 4th and 18th - 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and by appointment. Email [email protected] to request an appointment.
