Search Nevins Memorial Library:

This land was purchased by David Nevins Sr in 1868 to build a library and hall for the use of the residents of Methuen. He passed away in 1881, before ground was broken. To fulfill his wishes, his widow Eliza, and his two sons, David Jr. and Henry, built the library in his honor. It was completed in 1883 at a cost of $75,000. Both David Sr and Eliza are buried on the grounds, under a statue titled the Angel of Life sculpted by George Moretti of New York. The bronze figure holds aloft a banner which reads "The pleasant memory of their worth", the last line from "The Living Lost", a William Cullen poem. Due to a recent library expansion in 2001, the statue now faces a side of the building.
