Sippican Historical Society reopens to the public

Jul 12, 2020

MARION — During the ongoing history in the making known as the coronavirus pandemic, the Sippican Historical Society reopened its doors to the public with a small event on July 12.

Members of the board of directors sat in the building’s courtyard and offered lemonade to residents and chatted with people that came by. 

“We’re thrilled to be open again,” said President William Tifft.

He said the society has a backlog of events due to coronavirus cancellations, so there will be more to come in the future. There are enough events to go through the end of Fall, Tifft said.

The society is looking to start a monthly speaker series, maintain its new book and gift shop, and continue to help fund the restoration of Marion’s Town House. 

With new leadership stepping in with its opening, Board of Director member Judith Rosbe said it “feels like it’s going to be rejuvenating.”
