M-BELT Annual Meeting

Saturday, November 4, 2017 @ 1:00 pm

The Medford-Brooks Estate Land Trust (M-BELT) will hold its 2017 Annual Meeting as it continues to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the acquisition of the Brooks Estate by the City of Medford. Parking is available in front of the complex on George Street, and the building is ADA-accessible. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.

In addition to a business meeting/elections and project update, the afternoon will feature an illustrated talk by M-BELT board member Doug Carr, entitled “Everything is Connected: Six Degress of Brooks Separation.” Over their nearly 300-year tenure as one of Medford’s most prominent families, the Brooks family left behind a deep legacy with countless links to different people, places, and institutions throughout the world. In this informative and entertaining presentation, Carr will explore the Brooks family’s relationships with different cities throughout the United States and connections with modern architecture, the American Revolution, H.H. Richardson, Frank Lloyd Wright, John Singer Sargent, Claude Monet, Isabella Stewart Gardner, two governors, a senator, and Barbra Streisand!

M-BELT is a nonprofit organization that manages the Brooks Estate, owned by the City of Medford. A former Victorian summer retreat for Peter Chardon Brooks and Shepherd Brooks, the property is graced by two Victorian buildings, the Shepherd Brooks Manor and Carriage House (1880), both slated for adaptive re-use as community assets. The property also offers Brooks Pond and 50 acres of open space for birds, wildlife and nature lovers.
