Small but mighty, young but wise. New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center opened in 2016 in a 3,000 sq. foot space and quickly became a place of pride and “must-see” attraction in New Bedford’s historic district. This is a museum done right, with only 2 ½ paid staff and dedicated volunteers.
“We have a shared history as Americans in a democratic society,” says Lee Blake. “Our focus is on the history of New Bedford’s people of color:  African American, West Indian, Cape Verdean, Native American. Their stories need to be told; their stories are important.”
