Organizational History

 

The Gadsden Arts Organizational History Collection was created in 2017 and consists of art and artifacts that are items of historical, cultural, or other institutional significance to the history of the Bell & Bates Building and the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum. In 1997, the Bell & Bates Hardware Store, situated on Quincy’s historic square for 85 years, was generously donated the 1912 Bell & Bates building to the Gadsden Arts Center, and the newly hired Executive Director, Zoe Golloway, accepted the gift with an enthusiastic plan, vision, and organizational goals that now guide Gadsden Arts, Inc. Led primarily by private donations, Gadsden Arts, Inc. raised $1.4 million to renovate the hardware store into the state of the art museum facility it is today.
