Brookline’s Historical Society had some photographs that were seemingly impossible to identify the location in town where they may have been taken. We were sure the photos had some connection to Brookline, it just was not clear exactly what it was. The photos were digitized and posted in our online database which led to the discovery by Acton’s Historical Society. The research completed by the Acton Historical Society uncovered the connection and detailed the timeline of events. We are grateful for the research efforts of the Acton Historical Society and their permission to provide a link to their website for the full story, The Barrel Shop That Burned. Enjoy it, we sure did!
