The Westford Museum & Historical Society presents

An Evening at the Abbot Estate

Thursday, 8 June 2017, 7-10 p.m.

The Abbot Estate at 32 Main Street was built in 1891 by Abiel J. Abbot, son of Abbot Worsted Company founder John W. P. Abbot. The house is richly ornamented to match the lifestyle of its original owner. Abiel Abbot was the treasurer of the Abbot Worsted Company and also served as a trustee of Westford Academy, town treasurer, trustee of the public library, and school committee member.

Current owners, Joanne and Michael Sargent will host this unique opportunity to support the Historical Society.

Music for the evening will be provided by Littleton harpist Rebecca Swett and Hudson pianist Victoria Bartolomeo on the Sargent's antique harp and piano.
