Bay View Historical Society gift shop items make thoughtful gifts for anyone on your list or yourself. Now just in time for Holiday giving, we've added a new color architectural rendering of the Beulah Brinton House to our already wonderful array of offerings.
The original watercolor was done by retired architect Grayson L. Schroeder, AIA at the request of his daughter, Donna Pogliano, a charter member of the Society. It was created to benefit the Society and raise awareness of the architectural and cultural legacy that we are so ardently striving to preserve. The gift shop has color copies suitable for framing or you can order giclee prints on watercolor paper for an additional charge.
While you're in our gift shop, be sure to check out our new Bay View t-shirts, our selection of handsome note cards showing familiar Bay View places, and our wide variety of vintage postcards that can either be framed in groups or singly. Sets of our annual walking tour brochures also make great gifts for people who want to learn more about the different areas of bay View.
Your purchases will benefit the Society, so stop on by to visit our gift shop when the Beulah Brinton House is open for events or during our regular open house from 1:00 to 4:00 PM on the third Saturday of the month.
