The Middlesex Fells Through the Lens of George E. Davenport
To coincide with a new exhibit on the history of the Middlesex Fells at MHS, we are pleased to present a talk on “The Middlesex Fells Through the Lens of George E. Davenport” on Thursday, April 11 at 7:00 PM. Learn about the history of how the Middlesex Fells came to be and meet one of Medford’s unsung heroes, George E. Davenport, who not only worked tirelessly for the preservation of the Fells, but also, as a photographer, documented many images of the nineteenth-century Fells and the city of Medford now in the Medford Historical Society’s Collection. Presented by Kyna Hamill (Co-President, MHS) & Mike Ryan (Executive Director, Friends of the Middlesex Fells).
