Karen Blandford Anderson has been named the new curator of the Derry History Museum, located at the Adams Memorial Building on Broadway. Longtime Derry historian, Richard Holmes, left the position earlier this year. Derry's museum features 300 years of local history and exhibits. The museum will re-open again this fall with a new exhibit featuring Nikki Tilroe, a famed Derry puppeteer who performed with Shari Lewis and Jim Henson.
