Notable Houghton

     Notable: Houghton Memorial Building: The Houghton Memorial Library occupies the Sandford Blackington Mansion, a gift of Hon. Albert C. Houghton in 1896 to the City with $10, 000 as a memorial to his brother Andrew J. Houghton of Boston. Library had 10,000 volumes in 1912.

The library is housed in the Houghton Memorial Building, but most assume that it memorializes our first Mayor, Albert Charles Houghton. Once, in fact, the library issued a collectible mug, calling it the AC Houghton Memorial Library.

This, of course, was an error. AC Houghton bought the building (from the estate of the original owner’s widow) and gave it to the then infant city as a memorial. But not to himself. Rather, it was to memorialize his younger brother, Andrew Jackson Houghton, as evidenced by the plaque that hangs in what used to be the building’s foyer. at North Adams, MA, USA.
