Reinterpreting the “Eames Massacre”: A pre-recorded event

Friday, November 19, 2021

Watch online any time beginning November 19 to December 1! To receive the link to watch, register at http://bit.ly/FPL-Events by 5pm on November 19. Framingham History Center Curator Stacen Goldman reconsiders all aspects of the 1676 “Eames Massacre”—its context and its reverberations into the present.

In February of 1676, at the height of King Philip’s War, an altercation occurred on Mount Wayte between the Eames family and nine Nipmuc men. The fight resulted in the death and kidnapping of multiple members of the Eames family, and the destruction of the Eames homestead. The “Eames Massacre,” as it has come to be called, has been interpreted as one of the significant moments in Framingham’s history, and the Eames family has largely been painted as the sole victim. But the lead up to this event was extremely complex and mutually destructive to both sides in the conflict. Framingham History Center Curator Stacen Goldman will reconsider all aspects of the "Eames Massacre" —its context and its reverberations into the present.
