New Bedford Historical Park’s 15th Anniversary Celebration


Do you have a special memory of New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park? New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and wants to collect stories from some of the many people who have strong connections to this historic place. The park is producing a video of one-minute stories about visitors, volunteers, employees, and anybody else who has had a special experience or story they’d like to tell about the park. There will one more drop in day on November 5, between 12 noon and 5 PM, to come to the visitor center at 33 William Street in downtown New Bedford, to share a one-minute story.

New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park invites the public to see the finished video on Saturday, November 12, when the park will hold a birthday party from 12 noon to 4:00 PM to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the creation of the park in 1996. The party will include music, a specially made birthday cake, storytelling, crafts and games. All attendees will receive a New Bedford Whaling NHP 15th anniversary commemorative coin. Admission is free for all events.
