The Hyde Park Sesquicentennial Committee will present its first event Saturday April 28, 2012, 12pm, in the branch library’s historic Weld Hall. In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Hyde Park’s 1912 annexation by the city of Boston, local historian Anthony Sammarco (author of Hyde Park: Then and Now — Arcadia Press, 2011) will give an illustrated talk on Hyde Park. A centennial cake and refreshments will be offered following the presentation.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Hyde Park Branch Library and is supported by a grant from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation. The Hyde Park Sesquicentennial Committee is a joint project of the Hyde Park Historical Society, the Friends of the Hyde Park Branch Library, and the Hyde Park Branch of the Boston Public Library.
