AUBURN, Mass. – Residents will have the opportunity next month to see what Auburn looked like 100 years ago and enjoy a potluck dinner at the same time.
The public is invited to the Senior Center on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 6 p.m. for the Auburn Historical Society’s free monthly meeting. Guest speaker Fred Mirliani will present Auburn photographs from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
“Everybody is invited to this great event,” according to a statement from the Historical Society. “Fred Mirliani is a wonderful speaker and a fascinating man who grew up in Auburn. We’re glad that he can open up our season with this presentation.”
Mirliani will discuss “Photographs of Auburn – Known and Unknown,” present items from the Photographic Preservation Center in Cambridge and ask members of the Historical Society to help identify them.
Mirliani is a graduate of the University of South Florida and holds computer science and master of liberal arts degrees from Harvard. Prior to co-founding The Photographic Preservation Center, Mirliani managed the digital media department at Children’s Hospital in Boston.
The Historical Society invites residents to “cook up your favorite dish and bring it along.” The meeting will take place at 4 Goddard Drive.
