Preserving Local History


Local history was preserved at the Hannah B.G. Shaw Home last Sunday afternoon wherein the story of Hannah Bartlett Griffith Shaw and her philanthropic endeavors were recounted including her vision for her property located at 299 Wareham Street.

Dorothy Thayer of the Middleborough Historical Society created a video depicting Hannah Shaw’s history which was played for the audience. Individuals from the community, current and former employees, residents and their family members enjoyed an afternoon reminiscing and sharing their personal stories of the Home over homemade pastries. The event was recorded to preserve this history for future generations.

Thank you for all who participated in this historical event. We enjoyed listening to your personal stories and recording same on your behalf.
