Georgetown at the Turn of the Millennium
by Terry Crawford Palardy
Georgetown is located 35 miles north of the City of
Boston. It is in Essex County and has a number of historical seventeenth century neighbors. Unlike its neighbors, Georgetown has its own K-12 public school system, and is the home of "Erie Four," the oldest still operating privately owned fire company in the United States, funded primarily by donations. These are some of its citizens' stories.
