Attleboro Land Trust board member Bill Lewis will present his research on the history of the Barrows house and farm, located on what is now the Deborah and Roger Richardson Nature Preserve on Wilmarth Street. The earliest occupants of the house were probably Benajah and Lydia Barrows, who were married in 1706. This is a program of the Attleboro Historic Preservation Society
