Historical Society meets today

MASON – The Historical Society will meet Saturday, Aug. 21, at 1 p.m. at the Mann House. The group will present a program on the Lawrence family, one of the first in town, and then walk to the site of the grave of the first white child to die in Mason, the infant daughter of Enosh Lawrence, who died in the winter of 1750-51.

The grave is marked by a boulder on the west side of Valley Road. There was, at that time, no public burial ground.

Following the walk, everyone is invited back to the Mann House for a general discussion of Mason history. Society members will attempt to answer any questions about the town’s past.
