The Black River Academy Museum welcomes a new trustee, Paula Ferro!. About three years ago, Paula’s daughter and her husband were spending vacation time in Ludlow and fell in love with the area. Paula and her husband started visiting her family here and together they enjoyed looking at homes here. Last year, they finally found the right one. In September of 2018, they moved from West Hartford, CT to Ludlow.
Paula retired from her job which she held for over ten years as Administrative Assistant/Court Room Clerk for the Judicial Branch for the State of Connecticut. While participating in the various fund-raising events at the museum, she met many of the members of the museum and enjoyed the camaraderie of the group. She appreciates the historical value that the Black River Academy Museum contributes to this area and is definitely an asset to the organization. Paula likes being busy and is also a member of the Ludlow Garden Club and FOLA. She enjoys gardening, hiking, walking, and decorating. Her husband has been working in the carpentry business for sixteen years and does finished carpentry work.
Visit the museum and search for the room that Paula was photographed in. Which local business was it? You might enjoy seeing many of the other local businesses that once graced the Main Street of Ludlow. Everyone is welcome to visit at 14 High Street, Ludlow and see what the museum is all about. The summer hours are from Tuesday to Saturday from 12 noon to 4 pm. The suggested donation is $2 for adults and $1 for students and Seniors. See you soon!
