Event

An Evening with Robert Rantoul
On June 19, Historic Beverly will celebrate the publication of "The Autobiography of Robert Rantoul." Rantoul made enormous contributions to the citys progress. Especially interested in local roads, he petitioned the county commissioners to lay out a new street parallel to Cabot street from Menasseh Trasks house on Cabot street, near to the entrance of Colon Street, southwesterly to the India Rubber factory near Ezra Batchelders house, which was then named for him by the Selectmen in honor of his service to the town.

The book, written after the death of his wife in 1848, includes his biography and family history, short sketches of prominent Beverly people, his work as Overseer of the Poor and elected official, and significant occurrences in Beverly. This publication is a significant contribution to our understanding of Beverly history, made possible by dedicated staff and volunteers.

This event will support our mission to share Beverlys history with everyone through our collections, which encompass 3 houses, 5 centuries and 1000s of stories. Our goals:

1. Collecting and Preserving Beverlys History so we can share it through exhibits, research, educational programs, publications, and tours
2. Inspiring the Community to engage with history so we can strengthen our community outreach and develop a comprehensive education program that embraces diversity, highlights cultural heritage, and informs Beverly's future
3. Making History Accessible for all so we can improve handicap accessibility and increase public access to our collections and houses using 21st century methods such as our online collection, and social media platforms

The event will be held at a Rantoul family property on the Beverly Coast. Attendees will include local members and friends as well as descendants of Rantoul. The books editor, Charlie Wainwright, historian of Beverlys First Parish Church (where Rantoul was a parishioner) will offer brief remarks. The book will debut in both hardcover and trade paperback, and will later be available as an electronic publication.
