05:21AM / Monday, April 15, 2024

Mayor Jennifer Macksey says the requests for qualifications for the planning grant should be available this month.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Connecting the city's massive museum and its struggling downtown has been a challenge for 25 years.    A major impediment, all agree, is the decades old Central Artery project that sent a four-lane highway through the heart of the city.    Backed by a $750,000 federal grant for a planning study, North Adams and Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art are looking to undo some of that damage.   "As you know, the overpass was built in 1959 during a time when highways were being built, and it was expanded to

Monday, April 15, is Patriots Day, a state holiday marking the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord that began the American Revolution. The day has been celebrated on the third Monday in April since 1969.

They were to seize a cache of gunpowder and arms and capture revolutionaries Sam Adams and John Hancock.
