ry to quite a number of the inhabitants of the town, for at a meeting held May 16, 1829, only twelve days later, the town voted to instruct the committee in charge of rebuilding the bridge to build with a draw. This decision of the town to build with a draw was no doubt influenced by the fact that a shipyard had already been established above the bridge, and as early as the year 1815 a ship of 370 tons burden had been built there. The register of vessels built in Medford shows that prior to 1829 some 13 vessels had been built above the bridge, and their construction must have given employment to quite a number of mechanics and laboring men, as the demands of commerce from time to time called for a larger class of vessels; so the demands of the parties interested in shipbuilding caused the town to vote to widen the draw in the Great bridge. In 1833 Mr. George Fuller built at his yard above the bridge a ship of 440 tons burden, and was obliged to make changes in the draw in order to
h her brother, William Cutter Gowen. By his death, a few years later, she came into possession of considerable property, and was able to devote herself to literary pursuits and to travel. She passed the years 1826-7-8 and 9 mainly in Cuba. In 1829 she was in Hanover, N. H., interested in fitting her son Horace for Dartmouth. In a letter to Mrs. Gustafson, in answer to inquiries concerning his mother, Maria Gowen Brooks, by Zadel Barnes Gustafson.—Harper's Monthly, January, 1879. he writes: My mother's special characteristic was individuality. She generally succeeded in her endeavors. For instance, she applied to have me sent to West Point, and sent me to Washington, in 1829, with letters, etc. The appointment was promised, but by some influence was overruled. She then took me to Hanover, N. H., with a view to my entering Dartmouth College. In the meantime she went with her brother Hammond, of Quebec, to Europe, 1830, where she visited Southey, and by his advice got out a Lo
Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 3., The early names of Medford's streets. (search)
The early names of Medford's streets. DOWN to 1829 the people of Medford apparently cared little for uniformity in the names of their highways. It is probable that so long as ways were few, public convenience made no demand for names. With the increase in numbers, however, a fixed method of designating the various ways became important; and at the town meeting in April, 1829, the selectmen for that year were directed to assign names to the streets. Their report, indorsed Names of the Streets, May, 1829, is still on the files in the office of the City Clerk. It read as follows: The Selectmen being appointed a Committee at April meeting for the purpose of naming the Streets, report the following that the road leading from the Town pump (West) to Charlestown Line be called High St., from Town pump (east) to Malden Line Salem St. from Town pump (South) to foot of Winter Hill Main St., from porter's corner S. E. to Wellington Farm Ship St.— from Hotel (west) to where the ro
