    Patton Homestead offered

    Following the offer of a gift of the Patton Homestead and 28 surrounding acres, the Board of Selectmen is putting together a task force to study future uses for the property. According to town bylaws, residents will be asked to vote on whether to accept the property at Town Meeting in May. In a letter to the board, Joanne Holbrook Patton, wife of General George Smith Patton, a Hamilton resident since 1980, offered the gift, recognizing that the town “appreciates history and traditions that are worthy of preservation and sharing.’’ Those interested in joining the task force are asked to call 978-468-5599. - David Rattigan
