West of Worcester

Paxton Town Hall – 5:20 PM
Built 1888, brick foundation and white siding. Unusual Civil War memorial in the town common. Four cannon are buried muzzle down in the earth. Never seen that before.

Oakham Town Hall – 6:00 PM
A perfect mid-state hill town, Oakham center has one of everything a town needs; a town hall that shares a parking lot and driveway with the Congregational church, the 1907 memorial library made out of river stones and a brand new band stand.

Its not every church that locates its barbeque set on the front steps. Maybe that explains why the parking lot is full for a Saturday evening service. The back of the parking lot has great view down across an abandoned field, to a line of hills.

Barre Municipal Offices – 6:50 PM
Former Woods School, built in 1900. Just outside of downtown.
