Northborough: Historical Society holds monthly meeting

October 25, 2013

| Free

The Northborough Historical Society will hold its monthly meeting Oct. 25, at 7:30 p.m. The evening's program, “Reading Northborough's History Along its Recreation Trails,” will be presented by Historical Society and Trails Committee member Forest Lyford, who will highlight some of the many historical features that can be viewed along more than 25 miles of recreation trails in town.

Lyford is a retired Hydrologist who spent most of his career with the U.S. Geological Survey. His work in several U.S. regions included studies of groundwater resources for irrigation and public supply and restoration of contaminated groundwater. He moved with his family to Northborough in 1991 and soon became an active member of the Northborough Historical Society.

In 2001, he joined the Northborough Trails Committee shortly after it was formed and has helped with construction and maintenance activities of a large network of recreation trails. He has also prepared interpretive booklets for two trails in town. He has been leading weekly fall and spring hikes sponsored by the Northborough Senior Center since 2010. In addition to hiking, he currently enjoys woodworking, gardening, and restoration of wooden chairs.

Meetings are held at the Historical Society building, 50 Main St. (corner of Main and School Streets) in Northborough. There is no charge to attend and all are welcome.
