Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum Presents:

A Panel Discussion led by the Essex Writing Group: Topics in Essex History: Some Essex History,

Sunday, May 4, 2014, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum’s Waterline Center, 66 Main Street, Essex, MA 01929

Admission is free


Please join us on Sunday, May 4 from 1 – 4:30 p. m. in the Waterline Center at the Shipbuilding Museum.   We will learn about growing up in a clammer’s family during the depression and Revolutionary War veterans from Chebacco (now Essex).  Other topics will be about some very interesting people of Essex.  Carrie Andrews was a gifted singer who died tragically at a young age.  Annie Gosbee was a professional baseball player in a league of her own.  Rev. John Cleveland was a minister and a prominent patriot.
The Essex Writing Group provides an opportunity for those with an interest in Essex history to discuss, research, and prepare a permanent record of their work.  It is led by Karin Gertsch and Kurt Wilhelm, who have published books about Essex and Cape Ann.  Participation in the group is open to all.  This is the first presentation of a continuing program of their activities.
Light refreshments will be served.
