Program 1

Mural Project

Outdoor Mural Project in central business district of Marlborough, Ma. Plan to eventually have 20-30 murals depicting historical events, persons & places from Marlborough & region. Using the power of art & murals, it is our intent to create an "Outdoor Historical Art Museum" that will be open 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a yr and will be "Free". Persons who don't normally attend museums will now have the opportunity to do so & will be educated on history of Marlborough, Mass. & N.Eng. We plan on hiring professional muralists & having museum quality paintings. We also plan on having hidden objects in the murals & people will have to study them to find them. In doing so, especially children will be learning about history & art without realizing it.

Gasoline Station/Museum

To save & restore a 1928 Gas Station (oldest in city) located in the downtown,that was taken by the city for back taxes & environmentally cleaned up by the city & EPA grants. We hope to restore the station to how it originally looked and also to make a Museum out of it. It would highlight the 2 industries that played a major role in Marlborough becoming a city, (Shoes & Apples) . It would also house the complete contents of a shoe repair shop that operated on Main St. for almost 100yrs. in the 1900/2000s. It was donated to the city & has been in storage for many years now. It would house artifacts, info.& photos from the Historical Society. It would be manned by docents who will be volunteers from the Hist.Soc & Sr. Citizens.Assoc. It would also distribute info. about Marlborough.
