Committee Seeking Road Names For Brookside Cemetery

Bridgewater's Heritage Advisory Committee is looking for your help in naming the roadways in the Brookside Cemetery. The committee is gathering information and generating a list to bring to council in June.
Committee chair Patrick Hirtle says they are looking for names with historical significance around local geography or that connects to the industrial or technological past of the town. Hirtle says road names would be a good resource.

The cemetery is only one of two heritage properties in Bridgewater. Hirtle says people can make their suggestions to the town's facebook page, by calling him at 541-9417 or through email at .
