WHALE has been saving and restoring historic buildings in New Bedford for almost 60 years. This Legacy Dinner is intended to honor the recipients of the first-ever Legacy Awards; pioneers who helped to form WHALE in 1962, establishing New Bedford’s history and culture as a vital part of the city’s landscape.
