|Scope & Content||
Map shows the lay out of all the property to be developed at Gardner Parkway and the areas surrounding it.
This land was owned by the O'Connell Real Estate Trust Company after it bought out the Gardner Farm in 1911-12.
George A. Gleason, resident engineer listed on plan was chief engineer of O'Connell Real Estate Trust that was located in Worcester.
From 1899 to 1911 the Gardner Farm was owned by Charles E. Hinkley. Farm was listed at 42 Gardner St. and was a dairy farm.
Hinkley was also associated with the Thomas Dairy Farm in Salem. When he sold the Gardner Farm in 1912 to the O'Connell Real Estate Trust, there's no record of him staying in either Peabody or Salem, nor of his death. It seems that he moved to another town.
