Seems you may meet new friends from Groton wherever you may go!      My husband and I just returned from a trip to Kentucky where we did some of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. While we don’t often stay in a Bed and Breakfast, we liked the location and information about “The Meeting House” in...
I read with interest Michael LaTerz's article about Groton's role in World War I in the most recent issue of the Herald. Many of the aspects of that time period he touched upon have reams of source material written on them which we, the general public, will never have time and/or inclination to...

At 11:11 on the 11th of November, the Old Groton Meetinghouse Bell rang 11 times to salute the Veterans on the 101 anniversary of Armistice Day. The bell has been saluting and honoring Veterans of all wars going back to the French and Indian War in 1755 - 1763.      The bell situated in its...
Thank you for publishing the article about the military’s role in cleaning up the Nashua River and creating the Petapawag Canoe Launch Site along the Nashua River in Groton.      It truly was an extraordinary thing that Devens did and a great tribute to veterans. Their help was totally...
I am writing in response to The Groton Herald article from October 24: “Lowell Rd. Murder Suspect Held Without Bail.” The article included details of the suspect’s alleged actions on Saturday, October 19, 2019, however, included little about Mary Fairbairn, our kind and caring neighbor, who was...
