Ever driven down Town Farm Road in Westford and wondered what the history was behind the that unusual and large brick building at number 35? Perhaps you remember the school and recreation departments using the building, but wondered what this structure seemingly in the middle of nowhere was all about? On Saturday, Oct. 24 from 1-4, you will have a wonderful opportunity to tour this building and learn about Westford’s Town Farm, or poor farm, this building that was built in 1824 to house Westford’s “deservedly” poor and needy. Many times whole families were taken in for short periods of time, others stayed for years. Those that were able, were expected to help with farming and housework. And if you are looking for the sensational, yes, there was a murder at the town farm. Have we got your attention? You don’t want to miss this event…
