What will all of this material be used for?
Wistariahurst is a public research archive and we strive to make our materials accessible to all. Our materials are used by students, members of the local community, and scholars from around the world. We allow people to use the materials for historical publications and for educational purposes. If you decide to donate any materials to our archive now or in the future, we will ask for the usage rights to that material in order to allow scholars and teachers to utilize the materials in books, presentations, or other history and education projects. More information will be provided on-site or call us at 413-322-5660 to talk directly with our archivist and City Historian.
