Essex Locals: What was happening on July 2nd in Years Past


115 Years Ago – 1906

90 Years Ago – 1931

A very enjoyable day was spent Thursday of last week by the members of the Ladies’ Home Circle of the Congregational Church, more than 20 being guests of Mrs. O. Perry Burnham at her cottage at Conomo Point.
