Dairy Farms in Uxbridge
Blackstone Daily thanks Rene Thibault for these terrific photos depicting another era in Uxbridge and Whitinsville when farms were thriving and a major force in our cultural heritage. Many of these lands have already been lost to sprawl, but these photos will forever remind us of another time. Carol Masiello, who kindly wrote the overview article on the dairy farms, also worked with Rene to capture these photos. Thanks to both! Enjoy!
