'...Susan Navarre said she hopes to position their visits in historical context as well as clarify several rumors...."There's a little bit of a mystery," she said. "I'm still researching the exact truth of the monument in Fitchburg that says Calvin Coolidge stood here Nov. 19, 1928." The memorial on the Upper Common may have a misleading date, since other records show Coolidge actually visited earlier, she said.' (Submitted on May 5, 2019.)
