Jane Week: Quinsigamond Village: How Swedish It Is! – Saturday, May 5, 2018
12:00 – 1:00 PM
Meet at the pop-up parklet at Quinsigamond Elementary School parking lot, 14 Blackstone River Road
Learn about the history of the village as you view examples of its architecture. Find out about how this riverside community grew as Worcester’s wire industry grew, first bringing Irish workers to settle here, later followed by Swedish workers who, by the turn of the 20th century, had created a village community where it was possible to conduct just about any activity of daily life in the Swedish language.
