The Northfield Historical Society is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. In honor of this anniversary, NHS is opening a new exhibit at 6:30 on April 9 to celebrate the generous donations of historical items given to the society in the last 40 years. Titled 40 For 40, the exhibit will feature forty items or themes with stories that are important in Northfield’s history. It will also be displayed in three parts throughout the year to accommodate all of the items.
The Northfield Historical Society has been taking donations of items even before there was a building in which to display them. Some of the items being preserved are ordinary, some of the items are unique. Most tell a story about Northfield or the surrounding area. The public is encouraged to return throughout the year and see what is being preserved for future generations.
