Danny Bethel is returning to North Gate with a fascinating exhibit of his Lime Rock collection.  Bethel has been collecting photos, documents, post cards, and other ephemera relating to Lime Rock for 15 years.  Featured in this exhibit: the Lime Quarry, the Lime Rock Fire Department, the Lime Rock Baptist Church, the Smithfield Lime Rock Bank, the Lime Rock School House, Mount Moriah Lodge, and the Louisquisett Pike.  Among the items on display will be a document about a 19th century business arrangement regarding purchasing wood from a wood lot for the lime kilns. There will be photographs of Eddie Dowling and his wife Rachel (Ray) Dooley, and a program from The Glass Menagerie when Eddie Dowling was in the cast. (Rt. 146 was named after Eddie Dowling, an actor and producer born in Woonsocket.).  Another interesting piece of ephemera in the exhibit is a church bulletin from  the Lime Rock Baptist church that mentions fixing the roof after the hurricane of 1938.
