In a personal interview Mrs. Brigham
mentions interesting facts about the Medford
of her childhood days; of the Indians that came on the river to Rock hill
and up ‘Woburn lane’ to the ‘Rocks,’ as the Middlesex Fells
used to be called; of the digging for the ‘pirate's treasure near the big rock;’ and of a family burial-ground in our old town.
There are older people than she, long resident here, [p. 19]
who ought to be able to add their bit to historic fact relating to Medford
, which the Register
's pages will preserve.
's paper on Mystic Hall Seminary, read before the Historical Society eleven years ago (see Regis-Ter, Vol.
XI, p. 49) is the only historical mention extant of a once famous Medford school.
