You are now standing at a historical marker dedicated to Thomas Eames, that was put here by the Massachusetts Bay Tercentenary Commission celebrating the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the settler colony.
What is the historical narrative portrayed by this marker? Is it accurate? Whose perspective does it center and why? How might you re-write this marker to give a more accurate and contextualized portrayal of the historical events?
Take a moment to visit this interactive website "Watched and Worried," where the Framingham History Center is retelling the story of the events that occurred at the Eames Homestead: https://exhibitions.framinghamhistory.org/home/watched-and-worried/
