Lexington Avenue in Magnolia

The Magnolia Historical Society asked me to take some photos of a building that was being renovated.  The new Landlord, J. Stratton Moore,of Manchester, MA, graciously allowed me to take some photos.  As the workers were taking down sheet rock, they found these amazing sites that had been covered up over the years.  Also what was found was a hidden safe in the wall.

Information will be available for viewing once the MHS has established the Magnolia Historical Museum and Cultural Center at the Blynman School.
