They will share the highlights of Westford’s history from the earliest known inhabitants of the town to the present day population growth. WHS Director, Linda Greene, calls Hall and McLaughlin “dedicated researchers and historians” with a “keen eye for detail.”
“Rich and I are looking forward to sharing this PowerPoint on Westford’s history,” said Hall. “Please come out and join in a discussion on our villages, railroads and the many people that built our community.”
This event is free and open to the public. There is a suggested donation of $5 per person and $10 per family.
The mission of the Westford Historical Society is to promote the understanding and appreciation of Westford’s unique history to the community. By providing programming that features aspects of the daily lives, activities and achievements of Westford residents, Historical Society members strive to expand and enrich an understanding of how the town continues to evolve. They foster an environment of teaching and learning designed to strengthen the sense of community. They collect, preserve and exhibit documents, photographs, objects and sites that are historically significant to Westford, and they encourage outside efforts to do the same.
The Westford Museum is open most Sundays from 2-4pm.
