“Parker Village, also called Parkerville, was a Colonial farming neighborhood in Westford,” said Museum Director Penny Lacroix. “In 2002 the Parker Village Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. We are excited to offer this tour showcasing the unique old houses and features of the area”
This year is the second in a series of village-centric themes for the Westford Historical Society and Museum. A temporary Parkerville exhibit is also on exhibit in the Museum. Next year’s theme will be Graniteville.
The tour is free to all and no reservation is needed. A guide of historic and architectural information will be available prior to the event at the museum, 2 Boston Road, and on their website. See www.westford.com/museum to download a copy.
