Scituate History 101

And the Sea Shall Have Them All

Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask

Mat will attempt, in less than 2 hours, to outline the entire history of that area of the world now called “Scituate, Massachusetts”, from the last great ice age to the present, with a visual presentation of over 100 slides. This is the first time this feat has ever been attempted, and may never again be repeated!

Alternately, you can also:

  • Purchase tickets via email
  • Purchase tickets at the door (NOTE: Seating is limited)

Email GAR Hall Events for more information or to make a reservation!

About Mat Brown:  Born in Scituate in 1936, and having family roots in Scituate that date back for over 250 years, it is apparent that Mat knows quite a bit about Scituate. For over 20 years Mat taught Junior High and High School Mathematics in Plymouth, Marshfield and Scituate. He left teaching and joined Building #19 where he created prize-winning advertising. After Building #19 closed, Mat did work for Ollie’s Bargain Outlet (a chain of stores similar to Building #19 with 250 stores). Since 2014, Mat has been an Editorial Cartoonist for Gatehouse Media, the Scituate Mariner and the Cohasset Mariner.
