FRAMINGHAM,MA - The Framingham Historical Society & Museum, (FHSM), invites the public to come and find out how streets in Framingham were named. The program Street Smarts, "What's in a name?", will unlock the mysteries of street naming in Framingham on Sunday, January 22, at 2 p.m. at the Edgell Memorial Library.

Ed Convery, former Framingham teacher and principal and former President of FHSM will particularly explore the history of the Musterfield and how the streets were named. He will answer questions such as: whose field was this, what is the meaning of muster, what is an arsenal, and why were the streets named after WWII battles.

In conjunction with the program, several retired green and white street signs will be available for purchase for only $10 each in the Edgell Memorial Library gift shop.

All welcome and refreshments will be served.

Snow date is Sunday, January 29th.
