Upcoming Events of the Society

Fall Membership Meeting and the "Voices of War"
Wednesday, October 25th, 7:30 pm, at the Day House

Join historical society board members for a special tribute to Norwood's Veterans, as we share letters from the troops engaged in historic wars. We will feature texts in the Society's collections from World War I, as part of our celebration of the centennial anniversary of US involvement in the Great War. We will also read from Civil War diaries and letters from World War II, to give a fuller sense of the dedication and sacrifice shown by Norwood's residents. You can also walk through our World War I home front exhibit, "Knit Your Bit," still on display.


Old Parish Cemetery Tour: South Parish Goes to War
Saturday October 28, 3:30 pm, Washington Street entrance

Local historian Dr. Patricia Fanning leads a tour of Norwood's original burial ground, sharing stories of the town's most interesting veterans. The event coincides with the formation of a new community movement, the Old Parish Preservation Volunteers. The group aims to restore and maintain individual grave stones, and foster knowledge of the burials that began here in 1741. No tickets are necessary for this free event; please enter by the gate on Washington Street, located opposite Howard Street. All interested parties are welcome to join us for this rare chance to enter the cemetery grounds. Please note: in the case of inclement weather, we will hold the tour on Sunday, October 29th, 3:00 pm.
