The Bridgewater State Normal School (BSNS) was founded in 1840 and primarily used for future teachers. Mostly for secondary schools but a few higher education courses for college instructors and courses on teaching basics for professionals who want to teach secondary and college level courses. Predominatly a college for women, about 10% of the student body are men. The majority of the women students stay at the Woodward dorm that was rebuilt just 2 years ago after the original building burned down in 1924. The majority of men stayed off campus.
The Bridgewater Preservation society (BPS) was founded in 1847. Originally organized by the faculty and students of the BSNS but quickly opened to citizens of Bridgewater and the surrounding area to maintain the history and culture of the city of Bridgewater and the local area including the Hockomock Swamp. It soon became an investigative organization that follow up on stories that the police deem unexplainable. With all the stories of Big Foot, Thunder Birds, Indian curses, floating lights and more, the group has taken it upon themselves to try and put some explanation to these phenomina.
The library here holds several thousand books, but is still relatively small compared to other colleges in the closer bigger cities. It does sport a special section used for storing the more obscure cases the BPS has documented as well as a few books that need to be locked away for teaching courses to professors destined for Miskatonic University. The librarian, Mr. Edwin Nichols, is an elderly gentleman or perhaps 70 to 80, who always seems to be calm and calculating.
