Rendezvous with History — Discovering Who’s Who in the House Next Door
Monday, April 3
First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church
26 North Street, Medfield
John Temple shares fascinating stories about past owners of his house and asks, What about yours?
John Temple grew up in Medfield and now lives with his wife in a 200-year-old NRHP-listed house in Barnstable on Route 6A, at the corner of Rendezvous Lane.
He writes, “A few years ago a chance encounter with an old photo unlocked a century’s worth of history involving a very colorful family that summered here from the 1880s to the 1970s. It included a celebrated admiral in the U.S. Navy and a daughter who married into diplomatic service on behalf of the Romanov dynasty of Imperial Russia… not to mention the admiral’s great-great-great-great granddaughter, who stopped by for a visit a couple of years ago.
The program is free and open to the public. Please join us as John shares these stories.
