About Ipswich
map
Ipswich Massachusetts was settled in 1625 and is still home to 50 antique houses from the First Period (1625-1725)-more than any other town in New England. Ipswich is situated along Routes 1A and Route 133 and is also accessible from Route 1, which makes it conveniently and scenically located. Ipswich is surrounded by Essex, Rowley, Topsfield, Hamilton and Ipswich Bay.

Ipswich is home to beautiful Crane's Beach and the Crane Wildlife Refuge. The beach is long, clean and loaded with dunes! While in Ipswich be sure to visit Castle Hill with its views and Great House which reflects great wealth. Tours are offered and are an exceptional value. Another quick ride and close by is Great Neck and Little Neck which offers views across Ipswich Bay to Plum Island.

On the road to Crane's Beach you will come upon Russell's Orchard. Here you can pick your own fresh fruit in season (apples, strawberries, blueberries, etc.) or purchase them already hand picked for you. There are also hayrides, farm animals, a winery, an ice cream parlor and one of the best bakeries in the area. Mouth watering home made pies, strawberry shortcake, and cider doughnuts are available and well worth the trip!

DID YOU KNOW: That Ipswich is home to one of the few wolf sanctuaries in the United States? You can actually get close and not too personal with real live wolves living in captivity at Wolf Hollow. While visiting you are cautioned not to look a wolf in the eye or show him your teeth! But relax!! The North American Wolf Foundation contends that the wolf can co-exist with humans and other mammals. They just need to be understood and respected - Don't we all??!!

Royal Oak Foundation/The Trustees Fall Lecture
Jane Austen at Home “I shall be very glad to see you at home again, and then…who will be so happy as we?”– Jane Austen.

From her youth in a country rectory in Steventon, Hampshire, England – where she wrote her first stories for her friends – to the fashionable spa town of Bath, the seaport of Southampton, and her final years in her last settled home at peaceful Chawton Cottage, beloved author Jane Austen spent her time in many settings. A regular visitor to London, to the seashore for holidays, and to the estates of friends and relatives, Austen carried her own notion of home with her wherever she went. She drew inspiration for her brilliantly witty novels from every new experience and visit. She wrote most everywhere she traveled, accompanied by her portable writing desk, and penned her most famous novel, Pride and Prejudice at Chawton, now converted to the Jane Austen Museum. Author Kim Wilson will explore Austen’s world, her physical surroundings, and the journeys that she took during her lifetime, using new photography, archives, and contemporary illustrations. She will also bring to life the domestic settings of the author’s stories by linking her novels to homes where she lived, places she visited, and locations where she attended school, ending with her final months in temporary lodgings in Winchester, England.

Reception to follow sponsored by FREEMAN's Auction House.

About the Speaker
Kim Wilson is a writer, editor, and gardner who lives in Wisconsin and is a longtime member of the Jane Austen Society of North America. She is the author of Tea with Jane Austen, described by Booklist as “perfect for Austen-reading book clubs” and In the Garden with JaneAusten, described by House and Garden as “a charming book, full of interesting snippets and comment.

Marin Farm Corn Maze: Spookley Brings a World of Smiles
Ages: all ages

Marini Farms, 2014 Corn Maze,'Spookley Brings a World of Smiles', is an eight acre educational and interactive maze designed after the character Spookley, the Square Pumpkin. The book, The Legend of the Square Pumpkin, by Joe Troiano, is about a very special little pumpkin who teaches children that you can't judge a book, or a pumpkin, by its cover, and how being different is okay. Spookley invites you to “Dare to Be Square” and embrace the beauty of being different! The book shows how sometimes it is better to be square.

The Marini Farm Corn Maze was voted the 4th best corn maze in the country by Family Travel Files.
