Westborough – Last fall Westborough town officials made the decision to close down the American Legion Stowell-Parker Post 163 which was located at 7 Parkman St.
The building, known as the Spurr House, was built in 1849 and is behind the Westborough Public Library. It is actually owned by the town but had been home to the Legion since its charter was formed Dec. 26, 1946. But with membership decreasing steadily over the years, and the fact that the group itself only used the building a few days a month, the town decided it was not prudent to continue to keep the building open.

At the March 14 Annual Town Meeting, voters approved a measure to form a five person committee that will make recommendations at the next Special Town Meeting on what should happen to the property next. That committee will be headed by Town Moderator John Arnold who will appoint the members to it.
Those who are interested in serving on the committee should contact Arnold no later than Tuesday, March 31. He may be contacted via email at [email protected]
or by calling the Town Clerk’s office at 508-366-3020 and leaving a message for him.
