With Jane Sciacca of the Wayland Historical Society on Saturday, May 2 at 10:30 a.m.Photograph of Lydia Child

Lydia Maria Child was born in Medford, MA in 1802 and married David Lee Child, originally of West Boylston, in 1828. Maria, as she preferred to be called, became known as an abolitionist, women's rights activist, and Indian rights advocate. Nowadays, she may be most familiar to us as the author of "Over the River and Through the Woods." At David's death in 1874, the Town of West Boylston received a bequest of $250.00 leading to the founding of the town's first public library. Discover a part of West Boylston's history!
