Open House


The Black River Academy Museum is proud to announce an Open House on Wednesday, November 29 from 6-7pm where they will be exhibiting miniature replica buildings of downtown Ludlow. These replicas feature businesses and homes which were on Main Street from 1938-42.

The Ludlow Elementary School sixth graders and their teacher, Heidi Baitz started working this year on this project to show what properties looked like during that time. The students have assembled and painted the buildings using photos from that era.

Come visit and reminisce about the “goings on” in that busy thoroughfare when you were running errands or walking through town on your way to school. If you are not from this area but would like to learn more about Ludlow, this is the perfect opportunity to visit and compare what the buildings looked liked then to what they look like now. I think you would be surprised at the wide variety of stores that were available to the townspeople. See how many you can identify just by the shape of their roof lines, windows, and porches.

We look forward to seeing you all at the museum on 14 High Street. Refreshments will be served.
