This day in history

On this day in 1656, a committee determined where the division line between Newbury and Rowley should run: “... beginning at a white oak-tree standing upon the north- west side of Easton’s river, and thence running westerly one mile to a heap of stones laid there according to the courts order, and thence in a northwesterly direction to the Merrimack River.”
