Hi! My name is Candice Beaulieu and I started this project as a way to combine my constant curiosity about the history of people, places and things here in New England along with my love of photography. I currently reside in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts with my husband, about 40 minutes West of the City. I grew up in Central Massachusetts, and while I have visited many other parts of the US, I can’t imagine calling any other region home.
I challenged myself on November 7, 2018 (which happened to be our eight year wedding anniversary) to visit all of the Historic New England properties within a one year time frame, and document the journey here. I will be sharing photos, some fun facts and highlights of the history of each property, but also plan to visit some other historic sites in the area.
I hope you enjoy following along with my journey – and that it inspires you to visit and learn about the history you may have in your own backyard!
Disclaimer: I am in no way connected to the Historic New England organization, other than by purchasing a membership to their organization. I will likely be using historical facts found on their website, their printed materials available at each of the properties, and stories or information from their onsite guides in order to capture stories and facts that you will see here. I will reference concrete sources as I can. All photographs are taken by me, otherwise a source will be noted.
