Through a history book, two multi-media shows, a time capsule, a historical play starring current elected officials as Wellesley’s founding fathers, town-wide parties and birthday cakes, and skits for schools and summer camps, Wellesley spent a year learning about its past.
More than 100 years ago, when the founding fathers of Wellesley adopted a design for the new town seal, they selected one made up of three symbols: arrows and tomahawks for the Indians; a book for the colleges and schools; and a flower to honor the world-renowned gardens of Hunnewell, the town benefactor. Today, the town seal has come to take on even more meaning. The reference to the Indians reminds us of the importance of understanding and appreciating the remarkable history of the town. The book emphasizes Wellesley’s current dedication to education (through three colleges and an outstanding public school system) and to providing a remarkable quality of life for her residents. And, finally, the flower in the seal symbolizes the town’s concern for its future.
