    I have a watercolor picture of the row houses where Mr Parkman lived and on a little plaque reads: “here lived & died George Francis Parkman 1823-1908″ This is a very large beautiful picture by an artist named Shectman 1980…..

    would the above mentioned picture be of any interest to the city of Boston or Parkman Genealogy? I can send a picture of it.

    More likely that The Parkman House = Mayor’s Official Reception Hall would have an interest in your watercolor picture.

    Antiques Roadshow painting by Aldro Hibbard was painted of a town called South Londonderry Vermont. The Church on The Hill is no more. I am afarid that landmark burnt two years ago. Some of the buildings in the painting still are there. One being what we call the annex building. (was my Great Great Grandfathers Blacksmith shop) (left of the covered bridge.) This is an awesome find.
