I love my town

So today on my way to the T I finally wandered through the graveyard in Quincy Center. It totally rules! The latest graves are later than the latest ones in the graveyard near our old house in Malden, but the earliest ones are earlier. I discovered that in the 1690s Braintree was spelled “Braintery”, and in the 1730s it was spelled “Braintry”. (I believe what is now Quincy was part of Braintree then.) Expect photos at some point over the summer.

I love my town!
