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