Past Comes Alive in Historic New Bedford

wikipedia

Costumed re-enactors will bring local history to life on Thursday, February 20 as important personages tell their story at the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park. From candy making to harpoon-throwing, the event celebrates our local history with personages like the inventor of the toggle harpoon, Lewis Temple, confectioner Polly Johnson, Civil War hero and Congressional Medal of Honor winner William J. Carney, escaped slaves who found their freedom along the Underground Railroad, and others. There will be a treasure hunt with hidden clues and a new Kid’s Corner. All  events are free and the public is urged to come by and enjoy a day of local history, sponsored by the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park at 33 William St., downtown New Bedford.
