FALMOUTH — The public is invited to attend the Falmouth Historical Society’s annual meeting on Oct. 16.

The business portion of the meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by Dr. Jo Radner presenting “Burnt into Memory: The Brownfield Fires of 1947.”

Radner spent a year interviewing people who lived through the Brownfield Fire – residents who did and did not lose their homes, and others who aided in the rescue and rebuilding effort. Using those interviews and letters, photographs and newspaper reports, Radner created a history of the event.

After her presentation, attendees are welcome to share their memories of the 1947 fire. Reservations are requested; call 781-4727 or e-mail [email protected] by Oct. 14.
