Berkshire Gateway Preservation, Inc. is an independent, 501(c) 3, non-profit organization. The mission of BGP is the preservation of historic structures in downtown Lee and to use these facilities for quality performing arts and education programs. The current board members are Jane Gleason, Ellen Krupka, Dave Markham, Phil Smith, Garth Story and Rich Vinette.

Events have been held in the Lee Library, the Spectrum Playhouse, and the Lee Meeting House. Our goal is to continue preservation efforts. There are many historic buildings, sites, and monuments in Lee that could be lost if we delay our efforts in preservation. Our shared cultural heritage requires our attention if it is to be saved for future generations, a cause we believe to be worthwhile, and hope that you do too.
