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.
