Thanks to a generous grant of funds from the city’s Community Preservation Committee, staff from the Berkshire Athenaeum’s Local History Room were able to digitize and make publicly available 62 parks scrapbooks dating back to 1943.

Visit https://www.pittsfieldlibrary.org/ and under Library News, click on "Pittsfield, MA Parks Department Scrapbooks Collection" to access them all.

Be sure to tell us what you think!
