BUXTON: THE HISTORY OF WEST MAIN ST. FROM BENJAMIN SIMONDS TO COLE PORTER
Williamstown, 11:00 a.m.
Sweetwood for the next event in the Williamstown Historical Museum lecture series, when Dustin Griffin will give an illustrated talk on Buxton: The History of West Main St. from Benjamin Simonds to Cole Porter. This short stretch of Main St., once known as the “Buxton District,” is the site of the initial settlement of Williamstown, of two of the oldest surviving houses, and of the town’s first cemetery.  “Buxton Place” on West Main was for more than a hundred years the home of the Danforths, one of the town’s leading families. “Buxton Hall” –demolished nearly 60 years ago –was once one of the town’s grandest mansions, the summer home of the Lawrie family. And a big house called “Buxton Hill” was once the home of the town’s most  famous summer resident, Cole Porter. Over the last ten years the lecturer, Dusty Griffin, has presented many talks in the Museum’s lecture series, including “A Short History of Treadwell Hollow,” “The History of Flora’s Glen,” “Captain and Corporal: Two Williamstown Soldiers in the 37th Massachusetts,”
