Formation of the Bridgetown and Area Historical Society
The James House stood vacant for 2 years, 1977 and 1978. It seemed destined to be destroyed to make space for a parking lot in the downtown area. In 1979, public interest grew in saving the property. This prompted the formation of the Bridgetown and Area Historical Society.
In May 1979, Mr. Clyde Everett, a prominent citizen of Bridgetown, felt inspired by this project. He purchased this important landmark and presented it, as a gift to the society. The citizens of Bridgetown being very proud of their historic heritage are preserving the James House as an historic site and it has become the James House Museum. Why don't you become a member?
