Historical restoration helps bring town’s history alive for present and future generations

November 24th, 2015

Ed Turner stands next to a restored frame with one of the town's historical documents.

Westborough – As the proprietor of the Art and Frame Emporium, Ed Turner naturally has a passion for art. But after a recent project he completed for the town of Westborough, he has found he is also inspired about using art to preserve local history.

Over the course of the last year and a half, Turner and his team refinished 16 antique frames that were found abandoned in the attic of the old Westborough fire station. Those pieces were then used to display priceless documents that had been stored in the town vault. How this project all came to fruition is a happy story of chance, luck and synchronicity, as well as a dedicated group of residents and professionals who knew they had treasures on their hands.

All Car Care

Southborough—A 1934 Chevy sits in a repair bay at All Car Care, waiting for Rick Meisenheimer and his crew to restore it after a fire gutted the engine and damaged the whole front end.

If All Car Care can rebuild that car and negotiate with its owner’s insurance company, fixing collision damage on everyday cars and keeping them in good running order is a piece of cake.

“I’ve been repairing cars since I was 14. My first job was with Irvine Rambler in Hopkinton,” Meisenheimer recalled. He’s owned his own shop for 40 years, the last 30 in the same Southborough location, the first Studebaker showroom in New England.

Comfort food and hearty breakfasts: Lazy Sundays are made for Harry’s

Harry's Restaurant 

Westborough – Harry’s Restaurant on Route 9 in Westborough has always been a popular with the after-church crowd and for good reason – it’s the perfect place to meet for a relaxing breakfast or lunch on a lazy Sunday.

My friend and I were fortunate to arrive during a lull, around noon on a dreary Sunday. The smell of hot food, a cozy booth and a warm, friendly environment certainly brightened the day. The folks who came in after us weren’t so lucky and had a bit of a wait for an open table.
