"Irene's Legacy", a new permanent exhibit at the museum.

Irene’s Legacy is a new permanent exhibit at the Black River Academy Museum.

The Black River Academy Museum has opened a new permanent exhibit, Irene’s Legacy, on the second floor of the museum on 14 High St. in Ludlow. It is the result of a collaboration of BRAM, the sixth grade class at Ludlow Elementary School and LPCTV, and made possible by a grant from the Okemo Community Challenge Fund.

The class researched the effects of Tropical Storm Irene in the Black River Valley area using newspapers, photographs, videos and social media creating an interactive display. In addition, the class filmed a documentary video, Our Community’s Perspective of Irene, which is a series of interviews with people directly affected by Irene’s flooding.
