HHS Display Archive

We have established a new main menu item called "Archives" (see in the left menu), which contains a collection of exhibits that used to be on display at the Tuck Museum but are no longer shown. It also contains web pages that are no longer "current," but that might be of interest to people. Right now, it contains sections showing the Marelli Market's 100th Anniversary, HHS's 90th anniversary, and the Ruth Stimson exhibit from last year. It is an area we will keep adding to over time as exhibits and events come and go.



Beachcomber Newspaper Archives

Announcing a major addition to our website - a collection of 23 years of the Beachcomber Newspaper, digitized and viewable online, encompassing the years 1936 thru 1965 (there are some gaps).

All issues are viewable in high resolution, which means you can actually zoom in on the screen and read individual articles. We think that many people will be interested in viewing these old newspapers. It's hard to stop once you start!

The archive is permanently linked from the Town Histories and Miscellaneous section of the Genealogy and Research page. Click here for the main index to the Beachcomber Archives and enjoy!
