Southborough: Library hosts Henry Beston talk

September 19, 2013

Sept. 19, at 7 p.m., Southborough Library, 25 Main St., will host Don Wilding, of the Henry Beston Society, as he shares his stories of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Nearly 85 years ago, Henry Beston Sheahan, a World War I ambulance driver turned naturalist, wrote a book, The Outermost House, about the small home he built himself in North Eastham, on the outer Cape. This book became an inspiration behind the creation of one of New England's National Parks – the Cape Cod National Seashore. The Henry Beston Society, established eleven years ago, works to preserve the house, and the legacy Mr. Beston left behind. All are welcome to this slide presentation. Call 508-485-5031 to find out more.
