The Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese-American Archives is currently hosting the traveling exhibit “Azores – USA: A Journey into the Future,” which will remain open through March 31st.
The eight-panel exhibit offers a synthesis of the history of the connections between the Azores and the United States of America. The first panel sets the stage in 1750 and then takes the viewer on a journey of historical discovery to the present day. There is a complementary exhibit in the William O. and Mary Jane MacLean Gallery within the Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese American Archives on Portuguese American Immigration. This exhibit was recently featured at the Massachusetts State House.
The Ferreira-Mendes Portuguese-American Archives is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9:30 AM to 5 PM. Guests should use Parking Lot 13. For further information, contact 508-999-8686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
