In conjunction with its March 29th Annual Meeting and talk by Don Doliber (please see description, below), the Marblehead Conservancy is mounting an exhibit in the Library's Virginia A. Carten Gallery, featuring the story of the Lead Mills Conservation Area: From Grist Mill to Meadow – 1831 to the present. Images and documents provide a fascinating record of the variety of uses made of this parcel of land, from farming to industrial use to its recent return to a more natural state. In addition, a collage of photos showing several of Marblehead's other conservation areas will be displayed, to encourage exploring and enjoying, as well as helping to care for, these wonderful places. The exhibit will be on view from March 2nd through March 30th.
