We are trustees, members, supporters and volunteers of the Somerville Museum in Somerville, MA who are fundraising to renovate the Museum building to make it compliant with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act starting this July 4th - Independence Day and in our case, a call for those with disabilities to be able to enter the Museum with independence.

Our building was built in the 1920s and opened in 1933 to the public as a Museum and meeting place. It was not designed to meet the many needs of the 21st century including, accomodations for those with wheelchairs and other disabilities. The funds we raise will go directly into the renovation of the building by creating a new entrance with a wheelchair lift and a first floor handicapped-visitor accessible restroom. All the ground work has been covered and we are ready to go. The contractor has been selected for the exterior work and all permits are in hand. Please help us meet our goal!
