GROTON — The nonprofit Groton History Center recently received $10,000 from Rollstone Bank & Trust to help the center expand exhibits, interactive digital learning tools, student program implementation and develop curriculum.

“The Groton History Center provides an invaluable service to our community, helping protect and bring awareness to the town’s expansive history,” said Martin F. Connors Jr., president & CEO of Rollstone Bank & Trust in a statement. “We are thrilled to be able to support them in continuing their goal of sharing stories that educate, enlighten and challenge what we know about Groton’s history.”

Located at 172 Main St., the Groton History Center has been dedicated to preserving the town’s history for over 130 years. The center has a collection of artifacts, documents and memorabilia.

The endowment campaign, managed by the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts, ensures that history remains relevant to future generations through education, preservation and museum support.

“We are grateful for Rollstone’s support of our work over the years and the ongoing partnership that celebrates our shared culture and history,” said Kara Fossey, executive director of the Groton History Center.

Recent exhibits include Carved Birds of Harvey Sargisson and Sense of Place, a themed project bringing together Groton residents to each create an inspired piece of art. The exhibit debuted in the fall of 2021 and attracted more than 500 people throughout the region.
