In 2003, students in the Project Apprentice to History (PATH) program and the Primary Research Through the History of Beverly class began research projects from materials that sparked their interest on the website.
The results of their research were presented at the Downtown Boston Harvard Club on February 9, 2004, overlooking the neighborhood of Beacon Hill and what was once the West End.
