Spring Street Then & Now

Past Special Exhibit – Spring Street Then & Now

In the museum’s special exhibit that was on display from May through October, 2013 on the History of Spring Street, visitors were able to view captivating images of the street’s evolution.  Prior to Spring Street’s  acceptance as a town street, it was little more than a well-trodden lane leading to two springs at its southern end that supplied townspeople and college students with drinking water.  After years of development by the college, residents, and businesses, the street emerged into what is now a commercial “hub” of the town.  In the exhibit, the buildings, businesses and people of Spring Street will come to life in the “then and now” images and their accompanying descriptive text.  Look for our online exhibition of Spring Street Then and Now coming soon!
