On Tuesday, April 14th at 7:30 p.m., the Historical Society will host our 29th Annual Memorial Lecture in the rotunda of Free Christian Church, Elm Street, Andover. This year’s speaker will be Alan E. Foulds, author of Boston’s Ballparks and Arenas, which tells the story of the region’s professional sporting past through the venues where the teams played. Foulds will have copies of his book available for signing at the event. His lecture will give an overview of some of the forgotten sports venues in Boston and discuss Andover’s brief fling with major league soccer in the 1920′s.
The Memorial Lecture is given each year in memory of Historical Society members who passed away during the preceding year. The lecture is offered free of charge; location to be announced shortly.
