Edmund Fowle House
28 Marshall Street
Watertown, MA 02472
Please note that attendance is limited to 20 and registration is required (see below).
To commemorate the 251st year of the Edmund Fowle House and in conjunction with the Historical Society's current 250 Years of the Edmund Fowle House exhibit, Paul Brennan will present a talk describing what it was like to live in this historic home.
A history lover since his youth, Mr. Brennan grew up in Watertown and became President of the Historical Society of Watertown in 1987, when he was still in his 20s. He lived in the Edmund Fowle House as caretaker from 1988 to 1992. Of his time there, Paul said, "I was always poking around the house from top to bottom and even around the grounds. I think the first or second issue of The Town Crier published the finding of an underground well/cistern ... It was in my nature to be curious and still is." He will recount his experiences in the house, the upgrades made to the structure and the initiatives he enacted while he was President.
Following the talk, the 250 Years of the Edmund Fowle House exhibit will be available for viewing from 2:00 - 4:00 PM.
This program is free and open to the public, but attendance is limited to 20 and registration is required.
