Westborough – There will be an open house Saturday, Sept. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Spurr House, 7 Parkman St. The Spurr House was built in 1849 and is owned by the Town of Westborough since the Forbes family donated the house to the town in 1933. For many years the American Legion used the home as a meeting place, but it has been vacant since 2014.
A Spurr House Committee was appointed at March Town Meeting to develop recommendations for the ultimate disposition of the house and property and present at the Oct. 19 Town Meeting. Since then, the Committee has been conducting community outreach to assist with its research and findings.
The Sept. 12 open house will be an opportunity to showcase the home’s architecture and condition and to receive feedback from visitors. A special open meeting is slated for Tuesday, Sept. 15, at 6:30 p.m., in the downstairs of the Westborough Public Library, 55 West Main St., for a review of the Committee’s options to date and to solicit additional comments from the public about the future of the Spurr House.
Committee members are Chair, Bob Petrucelli; Vice Chair, Phyllis Jaffee; Secretary, Dan Messervey; Margy Peairs; and Bob Pano.
