My latest web project:
This year marks the 275th anniversary of the incorporation of the Town of Grafton Massachusetts. As part of this yearlong celebration, the Grafton News is compiling a virtual scrapbook of the towns history at www.grafton275.org. The site will include ‘then and now’ photos, old historic photos, documents, videos and events celebrating this milestone in our towns history. Grafton275.org is a volunteer project through the Grafton News to help celebrate Grafton’s Birthday. This site will be a work-in-progress throughout the coming year.
I’m having lots of fun learning about our towns long and interesting history. Grafton, MA is a perfect example of a quaint New England town with it’s Native American roots, and town history dating back before the American Revolution. The Grafton News has been a part of the towns history for over 50 years and we have lots of historic documents and photos to share.
Wow — beautiful. Simply beautiful.
You and I share a love of old photographs — they’re so interesting!!!
It’s just hard to say which are more haunting: the ice storm photos, the old portraits of people long since dead and gone, the early daguerrotypes of the inn, or even the 1999 photo of the burned-down mill….
Thanks Nick, I’ve got many more old photos I’ll be adding though out the year.
