The Historical Society of Greenfield invites you to join us OUTSIDE on the lawn to celebrate Mary P. Wells Smith’s birthday with ice cream generously donated by Foster’s Supermarket! An outstanding woman born in 1840, she is well known as the author of “Boy Captive of Old Deerfield,” as well as 20 other children’s books. She was a civic-minded and progressive activist, and we celebrate the 176th anniversary of her birth! Come and enjoy an ice cream, photo fun, and “Mary’s Fan Club”!
