About the Event

The story of Bathsheba Spooner has alternately fascinated and baffled residents of Worcester County for centuries. Beyond central Massachusetts, the tale is largely unknown.

Join Andrew, who recently published "Bathsheba Spooner: A Revolutionary Murder Conspiracy" as he discusses the tragic tale of Bathsheba Spooner which has survived the centuries and some of the architecture Bathsheba would have known well. Andrew will discuss six locations contemporary with the drama; half are still with us, and half have disappeared. A brief chapter reading from the book will precede questions and answers. 

*One hour before the event starts, an email with login information will be sent.* This event may be recorded. 

An Illustrated talk by Preservation Worcester Docent Andrew Noone.
