Sudbury – Murder, Merriment & Monahan's – Life at Lake Boon 1850-1950, the second in a series of three presentations on the history of Lake Boon, will be held by local historian Dick Gelpke Wednesday, June 25, at 7 p.m., in the Visitor Center of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge. This chapter will cover the period from 1850 to about WWII, concentrating on the people and events around the lake and the dramatic growth of population.

Lake Boon became a recreation destination for Bostonians during the 1920s through 1950s. Gelpke will tell the story of several infamous murders and other mischief of that period. The presentation includes images of many local landmarks, now gone.
