Historic Research Workshop at Swampscott Library on Wednesday

Delve into the past of present buildings in Swampscott.

 

Submitted by Town Planner Peter Kane

The Historic District Study Committee will be holding a workshop Wednesday night, Nov. 14, 2012, at the Swampscott Library in the Baldwin Room starting at 6:30 pm.

Help the committee as they go through old documents and records in order to develop the historic story for various properties in Swampscott.

Youll get a chance to look at old maps dating back to the 1800s and read about various people in history that have lived in town.

The historic property research is one of the many pieces to the development of a Local Historic District for Swampscott. The committee is continuing its work on developing this district for residents and is looking for volunteers to help with this research.

If you live in or are interested in the downtown or Olmsted District areas of Swampscott, the committee would love to have you join in the research workshop.
