The Pascommuck Conservation Trust is holding a fundraiser at Easthampton Community Center 12 Clark Street, Easthampton on November 10th at 2pm. Wayne Perrea will be presenting a historical discussion on the Loudville Lead Mines. There is a suggested donation of $5.00 per person however larger donations are certainly appreciated
If you would like to know more about this interesting part of Loudville’s history, please join us.
The Loudville Lead Mines is a historical discussion and exhibit offered by Wayne Perrea. As a Loudville native, Wayne has a lifetime acquaintance with the mine sites which were discovered and first worked over three hundred years ago. Artifacts and minerals unearthed at the sites will be on display, as will historical maps, writings and tools of the mining era, which Perrea has collected over the years. Hear about the six different mining “booms” that took place in this small village that borders Easthampton, and learn of the current condition and status of these mines. Questions are completely encouraged throughout the talk.
Wayne lives in Shelburne Falls Ma. with his wife and daughter. He works for Eddie’s Wheels, where he builds wheelchairs for disabled dogs. He also enjoys hiking and motorcycle riding.
