David Ball, President – Scituate Historical Society
An out-of-work fisherman walking a Scituate beach in the 1840s stumbles across a familiar species of seaweed, and from this unexpected moment of discovery grows a series of events that cause a cascade of change for the quiet little community that is still being felt today. Join historian and author David Ball as he explains how this particular marine algae found off the coast of Scituate dramatically altered the social fabric of this South Shore town forever.
