Over the past two months, the Society has moved forward in leaps and bounds with the organization’s website and new ways of communicating with the public.

At Long Last … The Gallivan House Historic Preservation Restriction Agreement Is Complete
As we indicated in the Society’s June Newsletter, the Gallivan House, the brick NeoGeorgian home directly across the street from the Town Green, was purchased by Braintree Historical Society in 2005 to join the General Sylvanus Thayer Birthplace, the Asa French House and the Barn and Resource Center at 31 Tenney Road, as one historic campus. The home has remained unused for a majority of time since its purchase.
