On August 6, 2000 we opened a historical museum in leased quarters in the Longfellow School.
In 2004 we started fundraising to build our own home, Cranberry House. Cranberry House finally opened to the public on June 15, 2008. It houses our Museum, plus an Arts Center, a Media Room, and Hitty's Café.
