Essex Aggie – 100 Years Old

The Essex Agricultural School was founded in 1913 at Hawthorne (Danvers) MA, on land granted by descendants of Nathaniel Hawthorne. They raised  cows, learned how to milk them, and then sent the milk to be processed and bottled. This unused bottle was given to me by Gloucester resident  Gus Olson, former president of Essex Agricultural and Technical High School..

    Now here is a classic bottle – Looks like the ones from the Farm there in lanesville Youngs and Days farm up off high street. I understand that Youngs farm was donated to Greenbelt is now a community farm for lanesville and Rockport I imagine cape ann residents to have community plots. These folks at Greenbelt have done some amazing work that way. See Fred all this over a milk bottle :-) Happy New Year.
