The Fall 2017 issue of The Weston Historical Society Bulletin is devoted to the history of Roxbury Weston Preschool and Weston METCO. Histories by Harriet Elliston, Rev. Judith Hoehler, and Imogene Fish tell how a small group of determined Weston residents set out to improve race relations in their own community by setting up a summer camp and then a preschool. The remainder of the 52-page issue is devoted to Weston METCO from its beginnings in 1967 to the present. Click here to read.
