“What has cost so much to achieve should call forth equal effort to preserve”. Congressman Charles Washburn at Dudley Common War Memorial Dedication, July 5, 1909.

"Whatever is goode in its kind ought to be preserved in respect for antiquity, as well as our present advantage, for destruction can be profitable to none but such as live by it.”
---Nicholas Hawksmoor, 1662-1736.

From the Webster Times October 7, 1865:

“It is a narrow minded and shortsighted policy which provides only for the necessities and demands of the present moment,…..and that man is derelict in duty who councils or suffers a disregard for the wants of those who come after him.”
Henry Hale Stevens, 1818-1901. Founder of Stevens Linen Works. Dudley, Massachusetts.
