Have you heard the expression, “one person’s trash is another person’s treasure”? This exhibit explores the 1998 excavation performed at the Balch House.

Strength, Perseverance, and Hope in Beverly
This exhibit illustrates the numerous stories of how Beverly stayed together and hopeful while being socially distanced, how we forged ahead in days of grief, anguish and uncertainty, and how Beverly and its resilient residents made it through the chaos and destruction of a global pandemic. On view at the Cabot House through December 18, 2021. All artwork is available to purchase.
Stories of Beverly’s black population can be found at Historic Beverly. These are stories of citizens, black and white, battling against the unjust system of slavery; of enslaved men fighting for freedom for our nation, though not free themselves; of a woman using the law to emancipate her family; and of the racism that affected the lives of Beverly’s black population, long after they were freed from bondage.
