Centennial Oaks 1914 – 2014


Jennifer Willson, Daughter of the American Revolution

It has been one hundred years since the Colonel Timothy Bigelow Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution purchased “the Oaks.” To that beautiful lady on Lincoln Street, I dedicate this blog with the hope to coax from her secret drawers and hiding places the history of her beloved Daughters.

      Thank you Harold! We would love to have your copy of the Receipt book in our library if you are willing to donate it. You can send it to: Colonel Timothy Bigelow Chapter DAR, ATTN: Curator, 140 Lincoln Street, Worcester MA 01605 or if you live nearby, we will be giving house tours this summer (dates and times to be determined) so you could bring it by then and get a guided tour of the house. Thanks for reaching out.
