These are some photos of damage done by hurricanes and storms in the last 25 years.
Paul Cope: caretaker from 1985-2009, cutting a tree in the aftermath of Hurricane Gloria. This was his first year on the job, and what a welcome! This photo was taken by a Weymouth police officer, and is probably on Norton St, near the Abigail Adams house.
BOB: August 1991
Most of the damage from Bob was in the Abigail section, where tall honey locus trees toppled over from the triangle lot behind the Abigail Adams house. Also lost in this storm was one of the beautiful white pine trees near the North St. gate and the Ambler lot. One of four white pines on that corner, it was soon followed when we lost another during the "Perfect Storm" or the 'no name' Halloween storm that year.
Irene: August 2011
