DICK HANSCOM VISITS THE NEWBURYPORT JACOB PERKINS BUILDING

Dick Hanscom of Alaska Rare Coins visited his hometown of Newburyport, MA last week and forwarded a set of pictures from his visit to the newly restored Jacob Perkins building. See our Flickr archive for a complete slide show. Thanks!

Pictured in front of the building is Jay Williamson, the Historical Society of Old Newbury curator. -Editor

Dick writes:

The first floor historical marker was from the Massachusetts Bay tercentenary. These things were all over the state. Williamson told me this one was found, but I donít remember where.

The displays were sparse. I think they put them in just to have something other than bare walls for the grand opening (it is not open yet on a daily basis). The grand opening was only for the restoration portion of the project.

When he returned from his trip, I mentioned to Dick this blog, which covered the restoration of the building: Perkins Mint (perkinsmint.blogspot.com/). -Editor

Dick writes:

I did not know of this until Jay Williamson mentioned it. He gave me a tour on Tuesday and I snapped some photos. The photos on the blog are better than any I took.
