When and Where to Meet: Wednesday Research Trips
W-101 Berkshire Athenaeum Research Trip
W-102 Silvio O. Conte National Archives/Records Center Research Trip
Both groups will share the same bus. Meet in the Sheraton lobby (first floor) in the vicinity of the hotel’s front desk at 8:45. The bus will be parked right outside. The bus departs for Pittsfield at 9:00 a.m. and returns to the Sheraton at 6:00 p.m. Lunch is on your own. If you’ll be visiting the Berkshire Athenaeum, you’ll be right in the heart of downtown Pittsfield, where there are many options to buy a lunch. If you’ll be at the National Archives, you can bring your own lunch or, after you’re arrival there will be an opportunity for you to order something to be delivered. The Archives closes at 4:30.
Not already registered? Pre-registration for the trips is required. The cost is $30 and covers transportation to and from Pittsfield. The Berkshire Athenaeum trip is full, but space is still available at the National Archives.
