Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf.

If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Arlington Lecture on Servants in New England

Arlington Lecture on Servants in New England

Arlington Lecture on Servants in New England

Seventy-five years ago or more it was common for households to have a full-time maid or other servants.  Domestic manuals from the early 1900s or earlier are filled with advice for housewives on how to manage the household help.  Often we visit houses with floor plans that suggest that a bedroom or two was intended for the help.

On Tuesday the Arlington Historical Society will present a lecture on domestic servants in New England in the 19th and 20th century.  The Arlington lecture and slideshow will be presented by Jennifer Pustz, a historian at Historic New England.

Pustz is the author of Voices from the Back Stairs: Interpreting Servants’ Lives at Historic House Museums.

The meeting and lecture is open to the public and is free to members or $5 for non-members.  You’ll have the opportunity to join the Arlington Historical Society at the meeting if you would like.

The Arlington lecture on servants in New England will be held at the Arlington Heights Nursery School, 10 Acton Street, Arlington, on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011 at 7:30 pm.  Please use the rear entrance.
