Semi Annual Barn Sale


The History of the Barn Sale

 The semi-annual barn sale has been a museum main event for more than 30 years. As our biggest fundraiser, the sale has been vital to the funding of the museum over the years. The well-known sale brings visitors to the museum that might not otherwise be aware of its existence. Additionally, other non-profit organizations, teachers, and other charities have been beneficiaries of barn sale donated goods. Teachers have picked up books and other supplies for their classrooms. Girl Scouts, and the Hingham Historical Society have received office supplies and equipment for their buildings. The First Baptist Church has been picking all the books that don’t sell and through the Got Books program has received funds to send packages to service personnel overseas.
