  1. Hello, I am working on a blog post about a former Plummer Home resident that is runner in the Boston Marathon this year raising funds for the home. The post is going into a meme I write for called "Sepia Saturday." It has a reach around the world. I was wondering if I could use the newspaper photos you have in this post on my post. Of course credit in the caption would be given to you or the this blog or however you would want it. Also would you happen to know the date of the upper article when that was printed? I see the the lower news clipping about the trustees was dated 1910. That information would be helpful. Thank you!

  2. Hello Doug Yes this is from a 1910 article published in Salem Newspaper would you please send me your email so I can forward you my sources. BTW Your Blog is very nice!

  3. Hi Melissa! I work for Plummer on the Development team and would also love to know your sources for this post and where you accessed the originals. We'd love to share on our website and social media!
