1913 Whitney Memorial Library, Bolton, MA
Published by OA Everett, Bolton, Massachusetts, no. 181207
Vintage 1913 view on the left, contemporary view on the right.
Bolton Public Library's building was the gift of Misses Emma and Anna Whitney in honor of their father Captain Joseph Whitney. Its native stone and tile exterior, arched windows, and oak-paneled Gothic interior lead some visitors to guess that it was once a church; in fact, it has always been a library. The building was formally dedicated in 1904. [http://www.boltonma.us/library.php]
