This April I will run the Boston Marathon to support the Framingham History Center, I was born and grew up in Framingham. I am excited to see all the changes taking place in the City, but I think it is important to consider and remember the past that got us here.
This will be my fifth Marathon and fourth Boston. I appreciate what the town has done to make the bibs available to support local non-profits. I hope you can help me support the mission of the Framingham History Center and their goal to preserve and share our culture and history.
The Framingham History Center (FHC) is dedicated to preserving the cultural and historic fabric of Framingham. It is a dynamic community organization with 542 members/donors and over 100 volunteers who actively participate in programming, collecting and preservation efforts. The FHC saved and continues to steward three of the City’s most historic properties on the Centre Common – the Village Hall (1834), the Old Academy (1837) and the Edgell Memorial Library (1872). These buildings and the vast collection of historical objects, material culture, and archives dating back to the 1600s that are housed within, drive monthly programs, exhibitions, and preservation efforts.
