Mark your calendars now for this year's Local Lore Night sponsored by the Charlestown Historical Society and the Charlestown Land Trust.  A special guest will be with us via a recorded oral history.  Born in 1892, Helen Chruch grew up in Charlestown along the Old Post Road and recollects her early years after the turn of the century.


Helen's amazing interview was recorded around 1975 when she was nearing her 90's and details the sites and community of her childhood through early adult years.  Helen passed away in Florida close to her 105th birthday.  This oral history recording, donated to CHS by the Hinchliff family, is a window into Charlestown's past.<< New image with text >>
