“We did some spring cleaning around the Ash Street Jail this week with some folks from the New Bedford Whaling Museum coming to box up and take away some of the old glass negatives and card records from the attic.
We’re happy these artifacts of New Bedford’s history will be in the care of the Whaling Museum, which will preserve, document, and one day, display them.
Thanks to Capt. Antonio Oliveira, Officer William Sellers and Correctional Officer of the Year Chris Bergeron for helping with the move. (Chris was named Officer of the Year a few years ago, and his pals at Ash Street bring it up as often as they can to joke with him, so we thought we’d join in the fun today).”-Bristol County Sheriff’s Office.
