The Noble & Cooley Center for Historic Preservation (NCCHP) was featured in a book published recently, as a "Massachusetts Treasure."

The book's author, Chuck D'Imperio selected several "marvelous, must see museums" for their uniqueness and interesting collections. 

Google Books described the book as follows:

"Well-known for its world-renowned art museums -- from the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston -- Massachusetts is also home to numerous institutions with more eclectic collections and, oftentimes, lower profiles. 

In Massachusetts Treasures, Chuck D'Imperio explores more than forty museums scattered throughout the Bay State, from Cape Cod to the Berkshires. Many -- but not all -- might be considered 'offbeat' and each and every one is enchanting. Through personal visits and interviews with founders and directors, D'Imperio offers an inside glimpse into some of the Commonwealth's most unique museums, providing a valuable guide for good road warriors and history buffs discovering Massachusetts either for the first or tenth time."
