Temporary Exhibits:

The Four Floods of North Adams

The new exhibit was curated by MCLA intern Kate Rowell during the Spring 2016 semester.  It presents photographs and newspaper articles on the four “big” floods in our city’s history.  As expected there are numerous pictures and articles from The North Adams Transcript, but there is also a front page article from The Boston Globe featuring damage from a North Adams flood.  Post cards and books also illustrate the results of torrential rains sometimes accompanied by strong winds.

The exhibit is in our first floor temporary gallery. It will continue through mid July.

Upcoming Events: "Everything Trains" Old Peppersass.

On Saturday June 25 and Sunday June 26, 2016, the North Adams Historical Society will host “Everything Trains – Peppersass Comes to North Adams at Western Gateway Heritage State Park.  The 150th anniversary of Old Peppersass occurs in 2016 and as a part of a nationwide tour there is a stop in North Adams.  A 48-minute video will be shown twice daily in Building 4N at the Park.  Admission is free and there will be a daily drawing for a family pack, four tickets usually priced at $60 each, to ride the actual Mt. Washington Cog Railway.
