---- — To the editor:

The Bartlett Museum is thankful to the Flatbread Pizza Co. in Market Square, Amesbury for hosting a fundraiser for us on Tuesday, April 2. We are grateful for the opportunity to raise funds for the upkeep of the museum building, which has put us in the red this past year. Thank you so much to the staff and customers.

Also, we would like to thank several Amesbury businesses for their donations. A jeweled key chain from Zemanian’s and gift certificates from Wild Garlic, Essencia and Design Shop were used as prizes for the raffle held that night.

The Bartlett Museum is a nonprofit organization that relies totally on fundraising, donations and membership to continue being an asset to the community. The 1870 Italianate-style “Ferry School” house features local history in the former carriage industry, old maps and mementos, a collection of prehistoric and Native American artifacts, memorabilia from Colonial, Federal and Victorian periods, a Natural History Room featuring birds, shells and fossils, an original vintage schoolroom and a carriage shed containing several Amesbury built carriages

Located on 270 Main St. in Amesbury, the museum is open for tours from Memorial Day through Labor Day: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 1-4 p.m. Also special tours can be scheduled by calling 978-388-4528.
