    I received an email in April from a friend titled “OLD MARLBOROUGH” it gave a detailed map of Marlborough. She can’t find in her data base. I passed it along to a friend months ago who can not retrieve it.
    I have since down loaded my system for repairs, subsequently deleted it. I was also sure I printed it but can not find this either.
    Do you know what I am talking about, if so please advise.

    Good afternoon,
    I am a member of the Stoughton CPC. A member of our Historical commission has expressed concerns regarding a historic home built in the 1700’s. It is slated to be demolished. It is my understanding that you had a similar situation and I think you had the home moved. Not sure. This was in the 90’s I’m guessing. Can you shed any light on the home you folks saved back then.
    It would be most appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Janice Lindwall
