The Pratts have been in Wellesley since 1904 but the family goes back to the earliest years of the colony when Richard Pratt arrived in Boston in 1638.

The event, a major annual fundraiser for the Society, will feature historical displays, a silent auction (items include a ride in this fire engine), food stations, music and more.wellesley fire engine
