The Society sprang at once into active and agressive life. In October, 1896, it planned and carried to a successful issue a historic festival, happily named ‘On the Banks of the Mystic,’ and which was conceded to be, as a whole, the finest entertainment ever presented to a Medford audience. The financial results of the festival enabled the Society to rent and suitably furnish the quarters now occupied, a cut of which is shown on the cover of this register. The house is itself an interesting landmark, having the distinction of a goodly age, and of being the birthplace of Lydia Maria (Francis) Child, in 1802. A large representation of the Society's seal on a wooden tablet designates the building as the headquarters of the Medford Historical Society.
