If you do, staff at the Black River Academy Museum would like you to join them on Thursday, June 22 at the museum on 16 High Street in Ludlow to share answers and take part in a photo-sharing event.

BRAM will host a gathering of people who like to share photos, information, and memories about Ludlow’s history.

Those with photos, or questions about an unlabeled photo, can come in and see if they can get answers from others who may know what it is or where it is located, such as homes or businesses that may no longer be standing, or may have been renovated.

The museum is also interested in compiling information about the buildings along Main Street, Andover Road, and Depot Street from the 1930s and ‘40s, and would appreciate hearing from anyone with recollections about any structures at those locations.

The museum is planning to develop a replica of that area in the future, and would welcome any input.

The public is welcome to drop in anytime between 4 and 8 p.m. Light refreshments will be served at 6 p.m.
