Historical Museum Offering Custom Plaques to Celebrate History of Homes as Part of City's 100-year Anniversary
In celebration of the city’s 100th anniversary, the Berkley Historical Museum is accepting preorders for custom plaques to commemorate the history of homes in the community.
Each plaque is custom-made locally by Hunt Sign Company to hang or display on a home to honor its unique history. Plaques are $40 each, and payment is due at time of preorder.
“Whether your home was built 100 years ago or just a few years ago, you can purchase a plaque to honor its history,” said Jeff Tong, executive director of the Berkley Historical Museum. “Community members can experience our city’s wonderful history simply by walking by and enjoying these plaques.”
Plaque preorder forms are available at berkleyhistory.com and the Berkley Historical Museum, 3338 Coolidge Hwy. Community members are asked to return the order form with cash or check payment to the museum.
The museum will accept plaque orders throughout the year and provide a special 100th anniversary magnet to museum visitors this year.
Berkley became a village on Oct. 8, 1923, and then a city 10 years later. A historical marker commemorating the city’s 100th anniversary will be dedicated during a special ceremony Oct. 14 at the museum. The event will begin at 3:30 p.m. and include the burial of a time capsule with items from the Berkley Historical Committee.
