Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- June 6, 2003
Hundreds gathered on the 300th anniversary of "The House that Phineas Built",a community celebration of the Upham family and its homestead on Upham Street. The event began on Saturady June 21, with a large clambake in the yard of the 300 year old manse--open to both family members and all folks interested in the history of our city. In front, center, are Jim and Lisa Oosterman, friends of the camerman, no less than Jack Beckley, director of the local Council on aging. Activities continued that night at Memorial Hall, then back to the Upham House on Sunday.
