Summer Walking Tours with Dee Morris: Mr. Cudworth's  Riverside Neighborhood

Saturdays, July 9, August 20 and September 17 at 10:00 a.m.

By 1850, the neighborhood along Riverside Avenue (then called Ship Street) was sizzling with golden opportunities. This section of Medford, next to the Mystic River, attracted skilled South Shore carpenters to the yards that launched our world-famous wooden ships. Scituate's William Cudworth settled near Pleasant Street in a Greek Revival house that still stands.

It was a busy community of families who took care of their property and fruit trees while they energetically invested in the future of the city. We will gather in front of Mr. Cudworth's former dwelling at 158 Riverside Avenue on the corner of Pleasant Street.

Intense Feelings and Broken Hearts:  Love in Early Medford with Dee Morris

Wednesday, July 13 at 7:00 p.m.

Early Medford was an epicenter of “passions of the heart”.  Governor John Brooks found a soulmate when he married Lucy Smith.  Nabby Bishop broke the heart of General Alexander Scammell. Abigail Gowen Brooks wrote about love's unpredictable nature. These vintage narratives are compelling because they are timeless. stories of devotion, romantic love, or even the unexpected rejection of a suitor became part of the community fabric.

Join local historian Dee Morris for these happy and not so happy tales of early Medford romance!

This lecture is supported by the Friends of the Medford Historical Society and Museum and in part by a grant from the Medford Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.  This lecture is a companion to the  MHSM exhibit Wedding Fashions of the 19th and 20th century.

Despite centuries of suppression and oppression, American Indian music survives today as a profound cultural force. In this lecture, author and musician Craig Harris will conjure a musical tapestry in which powwow drums and end-blown woodwinds resound alongside operatic and symphonic strains, jazz and reggae, country music, and blues.

Craig Harris is an author and percussionist.  His book Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music was published by the University of Oklahoma Press in 2015.

Summer Walking Tours with Dee Morris: Mr. Cudworth's  Riverside Neighborhood

Saturdays, July 9, August 20 and September 17 at 10:00 a.m.

By 1850, the neighborhood along Riverside Avenue (then called Ship Street) was sizzling with golden opportunities. This section of Medford, next to the Mystic River, attracted skilled South Shore carpenters to the yards that launched our world-famous wooden ships. Scituate's William Cudworth settled near Pleasant Street in a Greek Revival house that still stands.

It was a busy community of families who took care of their property and fruit trees while they energetically invested in the future of the city. We will gather in front of Mr. Cudworth's former dwelling at 158 Riverside Avenue on the corner of Pleasant Street.

Summer Walking Tours with Dee Morris: Mr. Cudworth's  Riverside Neighborhood

Saturdays, July 9, August 20 and September 17 at 10:00 a.m.

By 1850, the neighborhood along Riverside Avenue (then called Ship Street) was sizzling with golden opportunities. This section of Medford, next to the Mystic River, attracted skilled South Shore carpenters to the yards that launched our world-famous wooden ships. Scituate's William Cudworth settled near Pleasant Street in a Greek Revival house that still stands.

It was a busy community of families who took care of their property and fruit trees while they energetically invested in the future of the city. We will gather in front of Mr. Cudworth's former dwelling at 158 Riverside Avenue on the corner of Pleasant Street.
