VERY COOL !!!   It’s still not too late to mark on your calendar the date of Wednesday, June 20th so that you can be part of a celebration as the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds celebrates its 225th birthday. The event, which is free to the public, will be held from 4:00 to 6:30 pm at the Registry of Deeds, located at 649 High Street in Dedham Center.
“It was on June 20, 1793 that Norfolk County and the Registry of Deeds came into existence thanks to a bill signed into law by then Governor John Hancock,” noted Register of Deeds William O’Donnell. “As some residents of Norfolk County will proudly tell you, next to his being the lead signer of the Declaration of Independence, this was probably the second most important signature in John Hancock’s life.”
The event will celebrate the history of Norfolk County with the exhibits of 45 notable land records, including those of the 4 United States Presidents born here: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy and George H.W. Bush.
