Special Event: Meet John Adams
The Southborough Historical Society presented "Meet John Adams", a lively and revolutionary conversation with America's second president featuring George W. Baker as John Adams. This event was held on October 18th, 2014. We started with a social hour & refreshments followed by the presentation. We appreciate the kind donation of beverage and food items from Sam Adams Brewery and Cabot Creamery. Southborough Media Access filmed the event and you can see this very entertaining video at this Youtube link:
Burnett/Garfield Mansion at 84 Main Street
Back in July, the Town heard of the pending sale of the Burnett/Garfield stone house mansion at 84 Main St. to a developer who planned to demolish it. This photo from circa 1900 shows the Stone House #1 when the tower was still on the roof and shortly after the expansion of Stony Brook as part of the Massachusetts District Commission (MDC) Sudbury Reservoir. Numerous discussions and efforts in town quickly developed including a grass roots coordination (see www.historicalgood.org) seeking to insure the message got out to everyone to consider anything and everything to hopefully find an alternative to the demolition. Luckily and potentially as the result of these great efforts, the sale fell through. The town understands that the owner is working with the Board of Selectmen to find a solution that will hopefully avoid demolition.
