"Oldtown" Walk of South Natick

Sunday, April 30

1:00 pm

Begins and ends at the Bacon Free Library.

Join a Natick Historical Society guide for this 45-minute walk through the heart of South Natick, following the footsteps of the Praying Indians and of the “Oldtown Folks” – the characters in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel who were inspired by real-life personalities in early 19th century Natick. The walk begins and ends at the Bacon Free Library. Rain or shine.

No Charge, but donations to the Historical Society would be welcomed.

"The Life & Work of Frederick Law Olmsted" with Alan Banks

Wednesday, May 10

7:00 PM

NHS Museum

The firm Frederick Law Olmsted founded over a century ago was involved in over 1,200 landscape architecture projects throughout Massachusetts, ranging from expansive 500-acre public parks to intimate private gardens. One of its greatest achievements is a six-mile "emerald necklace" of ponds, parks, and parkways that winds its way through Boston. This one-hour illustrated lecture by NPS Ranger Alan Banks will sample this rich landscape legacy and explore the ideas that shaped some of the most treasured places in Massachusetts.

Free for NHS Members and Natick students; a $5 donation is requested from all others. Light refreshments served.
