Topsham Historical Society: The Pejepscot Proprietors: Good Guys or Bad Guys? 6:30 PM Topsham Public Library , Topsham

Three centuries ago, the Pejepscot Proprietors, a company of Massachusetts speculators and members of the Boston social and political elite, acquired extensive land holdings in and around Topsham.

Their business model was to make money by selling lots to settlers. They were used to getting their way, whether by investment, persuasion, political manipulation, marriage, legal challenge, or brute force. They were devoted to God, king, country, and self, not necessarily in that order.

Presentation by Jym St. Pierre, conservationist, editor, and amateur historian.
