Wakefield

Historical society offers free guided tours

Continue reading below

The Wakefield Historical Society is offering a free guided tour of the Old Burying Ground on Friday at 5:15 p.m. Nancy Bertrand, the society’s president, will lead the tour, which is open to all. Originally laid out in 1689, the Old Burying Ground is the resting place of some of the town’s first settlers and its stones represent some of the finest examples of Puritan gravestone art, according to Bertrand. Participants will gather in front of the First Parish Congregational Church, 1 Church St. Meanwhile, the Wakefield Parent Partnership is inviting residents to a lecture and book signing with Tina Payne Bryson, the coauthor with Dan Siegal of “The Whole Brain Child,” on Wednesday at the Galvin Middle School. Bryson will talk about the way the brain grows during childhood and how parents and teachers can help children work through everyday challenges in the different phases of that development.
