donald casey - san rafael, cal, usa
  • reading the guestbook evoked memories (dim, now, and doubtlessly inaccurate)of places and events in the 50's, such as:buying bubblegum at the crest; saturday serial movies at the paramount; brigham's hot fudge sundaes; wallowing in the murky and viral waters of rosemary pond; speculating on just what those items were being manufactured at tillotson's; hockey at pickles' pond; searching for used cars at muzi motors; and my favorite, painting a large blue "n" on the road at the wellsley line on the morning of the thanksgiving football match.
    i suppose none of those remain today.
    if donald watson [zat] is out there, mail me!!

  • I was just wondering if you could send me an e-mail telling me who built Needham Town Hall and when it was built. I am a student at Bridgewater State College and need to know for a brief paper I am writing. If you could, please get back to me no later than 7pm on 4/27 (Tuesday). It would be a great help if you could pass on this information to me. Thank you for your time.

  • I like your site, however, I would like to know how to write the Needham Historical Society---I do not see an address anywhere. I have tracked my Needham ancestors to Wales, Mass., and an old family tradition says they originally came from Needham.

  • Hi,

    I'm a home and garden reporter for the Star Ledger, New Jersey's largest newspaper. I'm doing a story on pansies and wanted to speak to someone from your group about pansy growing and the history associated with the flower and your town. Please call me back at 973-994-3257 and I will quickly return the call or email me and I will send you more questions. Thanks. I would appreciate hearing from you ASAP since I have an immediate deadline.

I moved away after college, but stayed connected through family and friends.Our family no longer lives in town, but the web page is a great way to keep the connection. Once a Needhamite....! Best of luck in your efforts and thank you.

  • I love your site. Your pictorial history was very enlightening. I may want to come to your pansy festival, but I need to know where Needham is. Is your state mentioned somewhere and I missed it. I saw a reference to Lexington, so does that mean you are in Kentucky? Thanks!

    I have a web site about small parrots, and recently had a veterinarian contact me for help tracking down information about a clinic called the Veterinary Emergency Center in Needham. Do you have a phone number or web site address for this clinic?
