Fall Collections Clean-Up!

Last weekend, October 13 & 14, several members of the HHS board and friends spent time reviewing collections in the Ladd Street School and the Museum as part of the ongoing work with the historical society's artifacts and manuscripts. This preliminary work is in preparation for the move to the new HHS location at Pearson Hall, and was the first of several assessment and clean-up days.

The crew started at Ladd Street School and ended at the Haverhill Library. We wanted to share a few images of the day:

Items donated from the Blaisdell Family:

Leather covered bottle from Woodsville; green silk drawstring bag, with gold thread, c. 1825; and decorative hand painted wooden trunk, c. early 19th century.

Thank you to HHS President Edith Celley; to board members Susan Brown, Tom Stocker, and Mike Marshall; and to Joe Marshall and Kimberly Alexander, HHS Consulting Curator.
