“The Haunted History of New England”

On Wed. October 5 2016 at 6:30 at the Association’s membership meeting Chris Daley will present his program “The Haunted History of New England”. It will be held at the Middleborough Historic Museum on Jackson St.

This is a one hour slide presentation that also incorporates video footage. The presentation melds historical fact together with legend and myth to produce an interesting and fascinating new look at events that really happened and the stories of haunting that followed them.

The topics addressed in the lecture will be Mercy Brown “The Vampire” of Exeter Rhode Island, the cursed Freetown State Forest in Massachusetts, The horrors of  the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River Massachusetts, The Nine Men’s Misery in Cumberland Rhode Island, a haunted forest in the wilds of Connecticut, the ghostly happenings at Mount Washington Hotel in New Hampshire, accused witch Giles Corey and the “Curse of Salem”, the spirits of Burial Hill in Plymouth Massachusetts and evidence of ghosts at the John Alden House in Duxbury Massachusetts.

Light refreshments will follow the program.

South Main St. Walk Sunday September 18th

Have you ever walked or rode down South Main St. looked at the big beautiful homes and wondered when were they built? Who lived in them? What type of design are they? On Sunday Sept 18 at 1:30 these questions and other information can be yours.
The Middleborough Historical Association will be holding a walk down South Main St starting at 1:30 in front of the Town Hall. The walk will go from Webster St. to Courtland where it will return to the Montgomery Home. At the Home there will be light refreshments and a chance to tour the first floor of this beautiful home.

All this can be had for the modest cost of $5.00, students free. As we plan we would like to have an idea of how many to expect. If you could call 508-947-1969 and leave a message it would be appreciated. If it’s a last minute decision you certainly will be welcomed to join us. A rain date of Sept. 25 is scheduled.
