|Scope & Content||
Plan shows .8 acre of Bagley's land abutting High School property. The City of Peabody would be taking that land through eminent domain. The right of way would lead to Tremont Street.
Gustave T. B. Bagley and his wife Bessie M. Bagley were co-owners of the P. B. & G. Bagley grocery store at the corner of Endicott and Central in Wilson Square. The land Bagley owned at 3 Tremont seems to be the land that was taken for the High School. In addition to being a grocer, Bagley had started out as a shoemaker, as his father was, and was a gardener. P. Brooks Bagley was a seed grower and lived at 15 North Central Street.
Frank Emerson the City Engineer, did the survey of the land. It is unknown where the location of the original is. This may was traced by George A. Barnaby in June of 1929.
