The Village Square

Spring is the start of many activities in the Village of Marblehead and around the region. With spring and warmer weather come construction and street projects. Currently the Streets Committee is working hard to drive every street and determine what projects are of the highest priority and will fall within the budget set for fiscal year 2013.


Maintaining The Keepers House

Several Boy Scouts and leaders of the Marblehead Troop #331 provided a Service Project on Saturday, April 20, for The Benajah Wolcott Keepers House.  The boys stacked a large pile of firewood left over from the War of 1812 Reenactment last September.  They also picked up the many pine cones and branches scattered over the lawn from the winter winds and raked the stones that were scattered on the lawn left by the snow plow.
