If you missed our November info meeting about the Brooks Park, or if you just want to take in all that information more slowly, we now have the presentation slides available to share!
Here they are, in PDF form – Brooks Park Info Meeting Presentation Slides
Maps, and the history of the property’s ownership and uses, were discussed by landscape architect Peter Hedlund.
Richard Iron, a masonry preservationist gave an analysis of the present condition of the Old Slave Wall (with photos), and some general history of bricks and brickmaking in New England (with bricks!).
Finally, the archeological potential of the site was discussed by Suzanne Cherau, a Senior Archeologist and Principal Investigator from the Public Archeology Laboratory.
The videos of each presentation are coming soon – the audio is helpful to listen to as you flip through the slides.
