if I could, I’d tell everyone from the Mayor to the town drunk to visit the Custom House Thursday night. A re-enactment will be held over the strained ‘divorce’ between Newbury and ‘those people’ down at The Waterside. It all happened in 1764 250 years ago. Both sides have gone their separate ways – one agrarian and one urban.
It’s ironic that both are still that way and that both are threatened. Newbury is more and more pressured to be suburban and The city overrun by thoughtless over-development.
Come – it is worth the $10 ( all goes to the Trust’s worthy work)
What a show to see!
