Apr 26, 2017

The Sippican Historical Society and New Bedford Whaling Museum are teaming up to open an exhibit titled "Celebrating Sippican: The Golden Age of Marion." The exhibit will open Tuesday, May 2, at the New Bedford Whaling Museum.

A press release from the Whaling Museum says that the exhibit will help visitores "experience Marion history as the city rose in social and cultural prominence in the late 19th century." During that time, Marion functioned as a choice resort community for noteworthy individuals from President Grover Cleveland to artist Charles Dana Gibson.

On opening day, the Whaling Museum will also host a lecture of the same name from 6 pm to 8 pm. The program is free and open to the public. Registration is encouraged by going to www.whalingmuseum.org or by calling 508-997-0046.

The exhibition was co-curated by Judith W. Rosbe, author of "Marion in the Golden Age", and Frank McNamee, owner of Marion Antiques Shop. The lecture will be led by Judith W. Rosbe.
