Allegany County Area Foundation Makes Grant to the Baker’s Bridge Historical Association

ACAF board member Ellen Shultz presents a check to Therese Le Gro, Trustee, Mary-Lou Cartledege, Treasurer, Susan Greene, Collections Manager, and Laurie Mc Fadden, President of the Baker's Bridge Association.

The Foundation award of $500 to the Baker’s Bridge Association will help with collection storage including the purchase of acid-free boxes. The Association has a growing collection of artifacts and objects relating to the history of the Alfred Station area. This collection includes photographs, papers, books, clothing, household items, and business, farm and railroad equipment. With a properly equipped storage area this collection will be safe, accessible, and usable, as well as preserved for future generations.
