Launch of “The Ebenezer Parkman Project”
Rev. Ebenezer Parkman (1703-1782) was the first minister of Westborough, and his extensive diary and church records provide the most complete picture of life in and around an eighteenth-century rural New England town.
Now, for the first time, access to many of Parkman’s writings are freely available through the Westborough Public Library on a new website, “The Ebenezer Parkman Project” (http://www.EbenezerParkman.org).
Come learn about this unique project from the people who helped make this website possible. The program will feature:
· Prof. Ross W. Beales, Jr., who will talk about Parkman, his life, and his writings.
· Dr. James F. Cooper, Director of New England’s Hidden Histories.
· Dr. Anthony Vaver, Local History Librarian at the Westborough Public Library.
