If you are interested in purchasing any of these beautiful, original charcoal drawings done by local, past, resident Olive S. Hughson, please contact me for arrangements.  They were generously donated to the Friends by her son, Conrad Hughson.

The first is of the Livermore House on Forest Street in Byfield.

The second is the Witham house, with Frank at the bottom of his driveway, shoveling snow.  The Dickinson-Pillsbury-Witham House is a historic First Period house which, along with an 18th century barn, sits on an 8.84 acre lot at 170 Jewett Street in Georgetown, Massachusetts.   See:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dickinson-Pillsbury-Witham_House:
