I remember walking by these buildings thinking how big they were and how mysterious they seemed - I was about 8 0r 9 at they time. But they stood majestically proud by the Lincoln Square.

The circa 1906 picture shows one of the two library builtings at Lincoln square, second Antiquarian Society buildings (this one at corner of Highland Street was built 1876). Location of the now General Devens statue.

General Devens statue should be moved to the new court house

General Devens statue is bigger than life. He was quite a general/soldier shot and lived to do his Civel War duties, his life/history is worth reading again. Remember the statue being moved circa 1950's. It was a big thing way back then.

The County Court House will be sold at auction. Anyone care to guess who will buy it? I'm saying WPI or UMASS.
