July 31, 2013, 6:30 in the Evening
Leavitt Manse/Marshall-Mason Homestead, Heath
Please join us for an evening visit with Cousins Mary Leavitt and Elizabeth Field as they reminisce about their family's Abolitionist activities in Charlemont during the 1800's. Follow along, as they recount the life and times of the Basil Dorsey Family, Freedom Seekers on the Underground Railroad, and the connections they had with the Leavitt Family of Charlemont and Heath.
The evening promises to be a thought provoking step back in time, revealing the courage and principles guiding seekers of Freedom and the people of Western Massachusetts.
Presented by Bambi Miller and Mary Boehmer. Discussion to follow the program.
