Norman Rockwell Museum Celebrates 50th with Founders Day

Norman Rockwell offered to hang his art in the newly rescued Old Corner House in Stockbridge, which would eventually become the first Normal Rockwell Museum.

STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Norman Rockwell Museum will host Founders Day, welcoming Berkshire County residents for free in celebration of the Golden Anniversary of the opening of The Old Corner House, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 19.

Family and friends of Rosamond Sherwood wanted to honor her memory and her contribution as one of the three Stockbridge women who in 1967 helped rescue the then 200-year-old building that would later become the original Norman Rockwell Museum.

"Rosamond Sherwood, with Norma Ogden and Patricia Deely, led an effort to save this historic building and helped rescue the Old Corner House from demolition in 1967," said Laurie Norton Moffatt, director/CEO of Norman Rockwell Museum. "When the board was looking for programs and exhibitions for the house museum, which would include displays from the Stockbridge Historical Society, Rockwell generously offered, 'Would you like to hang some of my pictures?'"

The doors to the Old Corner House opened for business in May 1969 and a few years later the building originally intended as a home for the Stockbridge Historical Society would become known as the Norman Rockwell Museum.
