If you’re cleaning out your old Gloucester house or the one you grew up in..
Be sure to give the Cape Ann Museum a call.
When I cleaned out my dad’s basement in East Gloucester this summer, I
came across tons of Gloucester memorabilia from the 1960′s, 70′s and
..old programs from the Cape Ann Symphony when it used to play at the
…theater programs from the Gloucester Stage Company when it staged
its plays at the BlackburnTavern…
…GHS graduation programs…
…Gloucester postcards from the 1950′s…
…announcements from the Rockport Art Association containing min bios
of members from the 1940′s…
All sorts of stuff, valuable and not, ephemeral and permanent, that
captured eras of not-recent Gloucester history.
Anyhow, I stuffed all of the paper and books and Gloucester
knickknacks into a box, and the archivist from the museum came over to
pick through it. She took a lot for the museum archives, sent a deed
of gift later in the mail, and mentioned that she wished more
Gloucester residents would call the museum come time to clean out
their parent’s homes.
