Boston Rd Postcard

From the collection

This postcard shows a picture of Boston Rd at Westford Center in 1907. Though difficult to discern, the picture appears to be facing southward from the Center, toward what is today the museum office (the cottage) on the left. Obscured by trees now, the building to the right is either five or seven Boston Rd today. The also still standing Fletcher Tavern is out of frame to the right. The original Westford Academy building, which houses the museum, was moved to its present location not long afterwards in 1910 to the left of the cottage.
