The Wakefield Estate will welcome Jon Green for the second event in its 2017 Stone Soup & Speaker Series on Wednesday, February 22, 6:00-7:30pm. Jon Green, who assumed position of Curator for the Milton Historical Society in 2014, will look closely at the history of a little known Native community, the Middleborough Indians. Their history reveals the political, racial, and religious dynamism which characterized the meshing of Native and English cultures during the late-17th and 18th centuries. Jon Green is a public historian, archivist, and educator and also acts as caretaker for the Suffolk Resolves House in Milton, MA.
This year’s series, entitled "The Stories that Define Us," will look at several key periods of our local history to highlight stories of our past that reveal important connections to our present and future. The series began by covering the time of pre-European occupation, and will continue with the colonial and Industrial Revolution periods, concluding with a review of the area's natural and environmental history over the 20th century.
Soup is served at 6:00 pm followed by the talk at 6:30. $10 suggested donation. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required. This event will be held in the mansion house of the Wakefield Estate, located at 1465 Brush Hill Road. To RSVP or for more information, please call 617-333-0924.
