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.
