Subject: Mass. Hist. Soc. - Spring Reception, Friday ..

I am interested in the history and general information about the "historical
markers" (signs) which we see along the sides of many of the roadways in MA.
I think they all mention the "Tercentennial Commission" on the sign. I
don't think I have seen any new signs being posted anyplace, and I'm curious
whether that "effort" only took place during one year.
While trying to find out about the "historical markers," I found some web
sites which people might not know about. If you go to the web site for
"Cyndi's List," and look under the "Massachusetts" category, you will find
them. One site was www.50states.com It doesn't seem to be a
complete web site, or a "free" web site, as some "links" don't work, and
some "links" lead to things you are asked to pay for. But, there is
historical data on the web site which you might find interesting.
I then went to the web site for the Massachusetts Historical Society, and
did a search for "historical markers," and did not come up with anything.
But, I did find mention of this Society holding a "Spring Reception" at
their offices on Boylston Street .. on Friday, June 11 .....
