Lee Blake, President of the New Bedford Historical Society and Jeanne Costa were my guests,recently, talking about the importance of local historical preservation and a special Stepping Out  Jubilee fundraiser.

During our conversation, we discovered that First Lady Michelle Obama commended the Society for protecting our local Under Ground Railroad Station and Sites along with preserving the rich African-American, Cape Verdian and Native American treasures here!

The Preserve America Steward designation is an incredible honor to receive from the White House and a deserving tribute to the hard work by the members of the Historical Society! BRAVO!!
