November 2009 Meeting – Marble Farm

We had our November meeting yesterday.  David Mark and Peg Brown teamed up to present the history of the Marble Farm and the families that called it home (Marble, Whitney, and Parmenter).

The Marble Farm is the oldest surviving house foundation in Maynard (the building burned to the ground in 1924).  Earlier this year an Eagle Scout project cleared the 85+ years of growth around the foundation making it once again visible to the public.  The Maynard Historical Commission is looking into grants that may allow us to do some archeological excavation of the foundation and grounds.

If I can get there before the snow falls, I’ll try to publish some photographs and perhaps a short video on the farm.
