You are cordially invited to a Thanksgiving Ball at W.A. Putnam’s Hall on Nov. 29, 1849. A ticket, including supper, is only $2.25 and dancing will commence at 7:00 pm.

W.A. Putnam’s Hall was probably the Bedford House, now the location of the Fire Station by the common. The Bedford House is pictured above in a c.1900 postcard from our collection.
