This month, the Wakefield Estate's Stone Soup and Speaker series continues with remarks by Alan Banks, Supervisory Park Ranger at the Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site in Brookline.
Banks will explore how industrial developments in the 19th century led Milton's own visionary Charles Eliot to create Trustees of the Reservation and ultimately, the Boston Metropolitan Parks System, one of the first of its type in the world.
This year's Stone Soup & Speaker Series, held on the last Wednesday of the month through April, is looking closely at several key periods of our local history to highlight stories of our past that reveal important connections to our present and future.
Soup is served at 6:00 pm followed by the talk at 6:30 pm. $10 suggested donation.
Space is limited and this year's series has been very popular, verging on "standing room only" attendance. So pre-registration is important and required.
To RSVP or for more information, please call 617-333-0924.
