Stockbridge: Local spirits to visit library

History will cove alive as the ghosts of past Stockbridge residents congregate at the Stockbridge Library, Museum & Archives for the "Shades of Stockbridge" program from 5 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4.

These characters, played by volunteers, invite residents and visitors to join them for an evening of historical gossip and spirited discussion.

Early authors Catharine Maria Sedgwick and Rachel Field will return as well as industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. They will be joined by original settler Abigail Williams Sergeant and photographer Anson Clark, plus many other illustrious guests.

No reservation is required. Tickets are available at the Library in advance or on the day of the event for $5, with all proceeds benefiting the Library's Procter Museum & Archives of Stockbridge History.
