Local History Author Talk: The Ingraham Diaries
Co-sponsored by The Rockland Historical Society.
Eleanor and Peter Richardson will present their 10-year project transcribing and editing the Ingraham Diaries, 1795-1875. Joseph and Henry Ingraham, father and son, owned a 200-acre farm in Rockland’s South End, which stretched from Henry’s Atlantic Wharf on the East, to the western end of today’s Industrial park, where the brook crosses the marsh. Local re-enacter David Sulin will do dramatic readings from the diaries in 19th century costume. Slides of historic photos will accompany Eleanor’s lecture. Books will be available for purchase.
