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. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. 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.

Ten Hills Farm by C.S. Manegold

C.S. Manegold, author of the new book, Ten Hills Farm: The Forgotten History of Slavery In the North, will speak tomorrow night, Monday, March 1st, in Newton.

The talk is part of the lecture series Encountering Slavery and Race in New England and is funded by the Foundation for Racial, Ethnic & Religous Harmony.

Ten Hills Farm was a six-hundred acre farm that stretched across parts of Medford and Somerville.  The farm was owned by three families – the Winthrops, the Ushers, and the Royalls – all of whom owned slaves are were tied to the slave trade.  The Royall House and slave quarters, built in the 1730s, is close to Medford Square.

C.S. Manegold will speak at the Myrtle Baptist Church, 21 Curve Street, West Newton at 7 p.m. on March 1, 2010.  Admission is free.  For more information please call Historic Newton at 617-796-1450.

I just bought Ten Hills Farm last night and look forward to an eye opening read. I’ll post about it when I’m done.
