On Thursday evening, October 27, 2022, at Norwood’s Morrill Memorial Library, there will be a presentation by Norfolk Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell entitled “Norwood Notable Land Records: People, Places & Properties”. The program is a follow-up to a celebration held in June at the Norwood Town Hall commemorating Norwood’s 150th anniversary.
The “Norwood Notable Land Records: People, Places and Properties” storyboards will again be on display, highlighting Norwood’s rich history, its illustrious stories and the wonderful people that have made and make Norwood such a vibrant community. Documents recorded at the Norfolk Registry of Deeds connected to Norwood’s rich history and the notable stories and people behind them are the basis of a free booklet that will be available to those attending the event.
Norfolk Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell who is helping to organize the event explained, “The booklet tells a piece of the story of Norwood from its earliest days to the present. What has made Norwood such a great community are its people. The individuals highlighted in those records represent a cross-section of the community. Norwood is a special place and should be celebrated. I’m happy to be a part of it.”
Register O’Donnell and the Norwood 150th Steering Committee hopes you can join them for the presentation on Thursday, October 27 from6:30 PM to 7:30 PM in the Simoni Room at Morrill Memorial Library. This event is free but registration is required. To reserve your seat, go to https://www.norwoodlibrary.org/morrillcalendar/ or call the library reference desk at 781 769-0200 x 2.
