Working on Neighborhood history

We’re starting to move into our new website dedicated to Asylum Hill history, and as a part of gathering some additional content I was out at 847 Asylum and then over at Asylum Hill Congregational Church.  The big quest for today:  finding the church’s cornerstone, which I did, lying on my belly, peeking behind some shrubbery.

The shots of 847 are an effort to get a visual sense of 847 in its historic milieu on Asylum Avenue.  They include a photo of the “seldom seen” western side of the house.

The cornerstone, as well as some additional artsy exteriors will be featured on the page dedicated to the church on our new website.
