Prose, Poetry, & Pictures from the Pandemic

The Sharon Historical Society is creating a new collection: “Prose, Poetry & Pictures from the Pandemic.” Having found few sources of information on the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic and its impact on Sharon, we are compiling a record of experiences, thoughts, impressions and remembrances of local residents on the current Covid19 Pandemic.    More info

The collection will be housed at the Sharon Historical Society’s Museum at 16 High Street and offer firsthand accounts for future generations of life during lockdown.
