STOCKBRIDGE — The Norman Rockwell Museum is in talks to buy the old town hall on the west end of Main Street, by the First Congregational Church.
The Norman Rockwell Museum and the First Congregational Church of Stockbridge have entered into a memorandum of agreement, the first step in transforming the old building into an auxiliary facility for the Norman Rockwell Museum.
Laurie Norton Moffat, director and CEO of the Norman Rockwell Museum announced the plans to the Select Board during the board’s Feb. 12 meeting. Moffat was accompanied by Pastor Brent Damrow of the First Congregational Church of Stockbridge.
“Some of you also know that Norman Rockwell Museum requires more space for our education and research functions around the collections we care for as we have grown over nearly the past 50 years to be the nation’s central illustration museum,” Moffat said.
