Historic Society to celebrate park

The Peabody Historical Society is planning a big celebration honoring Peabody City Park, which received the designation as a National Historic site in January of this year.

At 2 p.m. on Sept. 29, the park will open with a special ceremony and remarks by Peabody Mayor Larry Larsen.

Brian McDowell, longtime announcer for the Peabody-Burns Warriors, will be the master of ceremonies.

Events are planned for the entire family and will kick off with a fireman’s competition between the Walton and Peabody fire departments.

Bob Garity has a crew lined up to perhaps identify the public’s “rare” antiques and offer an idea of their worth.

Keep watching the newspaper for more information about the events at the park when the community celebrates its National Register designation.
