A Walk through the Past

Tour Stop #12 Southborough Library - September 29, 2007 Southborough residents have been privileged to have a “library” of sorts since about 1797 when the Rev. Jereboam Parker established the first ever “Social Library” in the Inn near the Meeting House. This was not a free lending library that did not come about until a Town Meeting in 1852 discussed funding a “public library”. Following a speech by Dr. A. L. Hobart, Col. Francis B. Fay stood up and offered “500 pieces of silver” to form a nucleus of a Free Town Library. An additional $500 was raised and it was voted to call the collection “The Fay Library”. The books were placed in the back of the Town Hall with Herman Este the first Librarian.

It was a few months before the Boston Public Library was created and Fay Library became one of the first free public libraries.

By the 1860’s the collection of books had doubled and in 1870, Col. Fay donated an additional $1,000.00.

The Library was still in the Town Hall at this time and had over 4,000 volumes in the collection and was growing rapidly.

In 1904 the town held a “Triple Celebration” on July 27. It was an Old Home Day, a reunion of Peters High School graduates and the 177th anniversary of incorporation of the town. One of the speakers, Eugene Fay urged the consideration of a separate building for the Library. It was not until 1908 however that the Board of Library Trustees voted to go ahead with a separate building. The Burnett family had donated the land at the junction of Main Street and Marlborough Road - the site of the original Pound and across from Timothy Brigham’s old house and where the first St. Mark’s School had stood.

Construction began in 1909 and it took until 1911 to complete. Volunteers moved the collection from the Town Hall at the top of the hill to the new location. During this period and until 1913 the library was open on a limited basis only. (The Southborough Historical Society presents a wonderful short walk on the history of the Town.  In several days the Southborough News will take you on that walk electronically but to see it best you should pick up a pamphlet when the Southborough Historical Museum reopens to the public.  "A Walking Tour of Southborough's Historic "Holy Hill".)

Water Tank Supply meeting

September 29, 2007 - (file photo Water tank Tara Road) 

September 29, 2008 - At the Public Works Planning Board meeting this past Wednesday much of the discussion surrounded the H2O Engineering Consulting Associates, Inc report on the town’s water supply situation. After several meetings with local residents, Selectmen, Fire Chief and others since the Annual Spring Town Meeting, Southborough DPW Superintendent and the Board ordered a peer review of the H2O report. The Town of Southborough is looking at several locations for a water tank for storage. Two of the locations are between Sarsenstone and Deerfoot Roads and the other location is near the current Tara Road tank.

The first peer report was presented by Kevin Flood of Fuss & O’Neill. They split the water storage supply problem into three categories: Operational Equalization, Fire Suppression Reserve and Emergency needs. For the operational Storage they recommended 25 to 50 percent of the average daily demand which is projected by 2020 to be 1,510,000 gallons which at 50 % recommendation equates to 755,00 gallons. For the Fire Storage based on ISO maximum recommended fire flows that should be 3,000 to 3500 gpm for a 3-hour duration they recommended 630,000 gallons. For the Emergency Storage to maintain a 20 psi pressure in case of pipeline breaks, pump failures, power outages or natural disasters they recommended emergency storage of up to 1,510,000 gallons. Fuss and O’Neil recommended an additional storage of 1,400,000 gallons. Several recommendations in capital improvements were made. They also recommend further analysis of the proposed tank and sizing and upgrade costs for infrastructure improvements. Mr. Flood compared cement versus steel storage tanks for the audience. Currently cement is cheaper than a steel storage tank.

The second peer report was presented by Robert Sims of Pare. Mr. Sims reported on the fire flow testing that they had done at six locations around town. Three of the sites failed to adequately meet the ISO values. They were hydrants at the Mary Finn School, Highland Street and Parkerville Road and Mt. Vickery Road and Cordaville Road. Pare’s recommendation for a tank site would be preferably away from your pumping station which suggests somewhere on the south side of Route 9. Pare had 3 comparison options based on the review of the H2O report. Option 1 was construct a tank at the Deerfoot Road site. The pros were it’s an available site, provides storage away from the supply, increases fire flow capabilities, does not require a lot of infrastructure improvements. The downside is it may affect neighbors. Option 2 is to construct a tank with an overflow elevation lower than the current system elevation of 515 feet. The advantages were that it does not require extensive infrastructure improvements and maximizes useable storage. Disadvantages are it requires potential for a new tank site, requires pumping water twice, eliminates gravity-fed system, creates operational restraints and increases operation and maintenance costs. Option 3 was to increase the Boland Pumping station capacity through the piping system. The advantages were no new site required. The disadvantages are it is limited by the water main size and extensive infrastructure required, extensive upgrade to the Boland station, system pressure balance difficult to maintain, daily use of large pumps will be inefficient, it increases the system pressure close by and require more energy costs and an increase in the pipe size will be required to offset the increase.

During and after the presentation members of various boards and committees and the public were able to ask questions. Mr. Dan Bradley of Sarsen Stone Way spoke firmly that a tank in their neighborhood would devalue their properties. Michael Horgan asked several questions to the engineers relative to having a water supply tank versus upgrading the pumping capacity. Deerfoot Road abutter, Denise Eddy, asked if we needed the proposed water storage capacity presented by the engineers tonight would the proposed tank be increased in height. She also adamantly recommended that the neighbors be a part of any planning process for the new tank. Mr. John Butler explained a lot of the process that any articles or monies for further study would take working through the Advisory Board and Town Meeting. More meetings on the subject will be held in the near future.

A Walk Through the Past

Tour Stop #11 20th Century Wars Memorial September 27, 2007 The 20th century War Memorial was erected in 1969 and dedicated on the 3rd Heritage Day October 13th of that year. It was originally engraved with 250 names and made from New Hampshire Granite. It honors men from Southborough who fought in World War I, World War II and the Korean and Vietnam conflicts.

Master of Ceremonies for the dedication was Donald Banks Commander of the Town’s American Legion Post. Other dignitaries present that day were Lucien Dion Commander of the Southborough Veterans of Foreign Wars Post, Father Wayne Berton, Rev. Paul Flagg, State Senator James Kelly, State Representative Robert Reynolds, Congressman Harold Donahue, and Secretary of State John Davoren.

Every year on Memorial Day the 20th Century War Memorial is one of the sites visited during the official ceremonies honoring those who gave their lives in defense of our country. It is also visited during the Annual Veteran’s Day observances held each year in November. (The Southborough Historical Society presents a wonderful short walk on the history of the Town.  In several days the Southborough News will take you on that walk electronically but to see it best you should pick up a pamphlet when the Southborough Historical Museum reopens to the public.  "A Walking Tour of Southborough's Historic "Holy Hill".)

Time Slipping Away

Left, Dawn Michanowicz, Assistant Town Clerk and Tamara J. Hadley, Administrative Secretary pull out a few old books from the vault.

September 26, 2007 - Through the efforts of the Southborough Town Clerk’s office, the second phase of restoring the oldest of the town records is in progress. Many of Southborough’s oldest birth, death, town proceedings have been recorded in old ledgers and books some dating from before the official establishment of the Town in 1727. These records have been kept in the Vault at the Town Hall. The vault is as old as the current Town House which was built in 1870. The door to the vault is not the original but still is old. Town Clerk Paul Berry said that the vault in it’s current state is not good to keep the old vital records in. It is not climate controlled and dusty and he would eventually love to get a new modern safe that would be fireproof and climate controlled to ensure that the records remain stable.

Money for the restoration of the records was voted on at the Annual Spring Town Meeting through the use of the Community Preservation Act funds and the Community Preservation Committee support. Currently one of the older records of births in town is being restored by Brown River in Vermont. They carefully remove the binding and clean and preserve the pages and place them into archival quality sleeves and then will rest itch the binding. This process should last these records another 200 to 250 years. Mr. Berry said that it is vital that the Town of Southborough have these records preserved and maintained to ensure that the Town never loses the information or its past.

A Walk Through the Past

Tour Stop #10 Civil War Monument - September 24, 2007 Henry H. Peters proposed at the February 1865 Town Meeting, that a memorial be erected in honor of the Southborough dead in the Civil War. He began the subscription by contributing $500.00 towards a monument. Nine others contributed to mach Peter’s gift. Cora Newton organized a Benefit Assembly Ball and a series of Ladies’ Tea parties which brought the total to over $1,600.00.

Unveiled on New Year’s Day, 1867, the entire town turned out - almost 2,000 people. They crowded in and around Pilgrim Church which was decorated with evergreens and large signs with the names of the war dead. There was a dusting of snow but the Church doors were open so those outside could hear the address by the Honorable Samuel Appleton. The service completed, an honor guard of Southborough’s surviving Civil War veterans marched out of the Church and led the people to the green. The green had been carefully laid out, a new stone fence had been put around it. Then the monument of polished Fitzwilliam granite, with the names of the dead Southborough soldiers cut into the four faces, was unveiled. Three cheers were given and the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was sung ending the ceremony.

In 1877 Southborough’s “Semi-Tercentennial” celebrating the 150th birthday of the Town, saw the monument trimmed in white flowers while on July 27, 1904, the trim was in red, white and blue for “Old Home Day”. An elaborate picnic spread for almost 1,000 people was served on the green and around the monument as soon as the speeches were done. Games and horse drawn tours of the town followed. The dominant figure at the celebration was Selectman Francis Dexter Newton, a Civil /War Veteran and Master of Ceremonies. (The Southborough Historical Society presents a wonderful short walk on the history of the Town.  In several days the Southborough News will take you on that walk electronically but to see it best you should pick up a pamphlet when the Southborough Historical Museum reopens to the public.  "A Walking Tour of Southborough's Historic "Holy Hill".)

Nature's Painting

September 24, 2007 - Butterflies are plentiful at the fields of clover on Chestnut Hill Farm.  With the upcoming warm weather this week if you take a hike on the property you should see dozens or perhaps hundreds of butterflies. There is a small lot on the East side of Chestnut Hill Road for parking.  The trails are well marked.  There are no bikes or dogs allowed.  It is a wonderful property to enjoy Southborough outdoors.
