Townsend Historical Society

Get those Memories down on Paper! 


 Townsend Over Time

Share your memories about living in Townsend!

Whether they're about growing up in town, your school experiences, moving to town, memorable people you met or knew, political anecdotes, town events…we want to save those stories!

The Townsend Historical Society is working in collaboration with Priscilla Kipp, coauthor of Voices from their times and places: Women of Townsend share their stories, published in 1992, and Kate Walsh, Editor of the Townsend Times, to collect and share Townsend memories.   The serial feature has already started to run in the Townsend Times, its premiere story based on some of Catherine Wilson's recollections originally printed in Voices.   The memories will also be featured on the website .

The project will last as long as stories keep coming in. So write those stories down! Email or mail them to the Society:; P.O. Box 95, Townsend, MA 01469. We'll save a copy for our collection and forward a copy to Priscilla and/or Kate.

Or, if you'd rather talk about your memories, call the Society at 978-597-2106 to set up a time for a tape-recorded interview!
