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.

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.

Donate: Pavilion in the Park

It was a proud moment for the people of Lee in the spring of 2019 when the beautifully restored Kilbon Memorial Fountain was rededicated. We now propose another collaborative effort that will place a simple but elegant pavilion in the park, allowing us to fill our wonderful leafy hills with the sound of music. This will be a permanent structure owned by BGP and it will be used for other events such as the Farmer’s Market and fairs or just for lolling in the shade on a sunny day.
