In the first paragraph, there are mistakes . . . the dedication was held on Saturday, September 16, 2000, the exact date of her death.
The week of events at Harvard University and in the towns of Salem, Ipswich and North Andover was to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the publishing of "The Tenth Muse."
North Andover, then known as "Andover Parish" was founded about 1642. She helped found the town and resided there for the last half of her life.
The Old Burying Ground (c. 1660) is at the corner of Academy Road and Osgood Street. It is believed her home (see "Upon the Burning of Our House, July 10, 1666" for her words about the loss) was situated across the road from the Parson Barnard House (c. 1715).
Thank you for all you do for history and culture in the Commonwealth and beyond!
