Old Bridgewater Historical Society – January Lecture Announced


West Bridgewater, MA --- The Old Bridgewater Historical Society will present a lecture entitled “200 Years of North Bridgewater” on Sunday, January 23rd beginning at 2 p.m. at the Memorial Building located at 162 Howard Street in West Bridgewater. Bill Hogan will be the speaker.

The history of Brockton began with a land deal in 1645 when the town of Duxbury was granted a plantation consisting of what are now Brockton, Bridgewater, East Bridgewater and West Bridgewater. Brockton’s official seal notes that it became “A Town” in 1821 and was then known as North Bridgewater.

Join us for a talk about the bicentennial and history of North Bridgewater/Brockton. Artifacts will be presented, followed by a Question and Answer period.

The lecture will be presented by Bill Hogan, lifetime Brockton resident, city historian, president of the Downtown Brockton Museum and former owner of Hogie’s Hobbies.
A $5 donation is suggested. On street parking is available.

The Old Bridgewater Historical Society, a private organization, started in 1894, is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and publication of history relating to the original Bridgewater township, which includes the towns of Bridgewater, East Bridgewater, West Bridgewater, and the city of Brockton.
