In the mid-1960s, east Woburn had a pleasing rural aspect. The Aberjona River, a narrow, placid stream, only a few feet wide and waist-deep, ran through a marshland of reeds, cattails, and grassy tussocks. Much of the land on either side of the river valley had been farmed, and several small farms, an orchard or two, and open fields still remained. Along the river itself, at the edge of the marshes, grew copses of maple, oak, and hickory. To Anne and Charles, east Woburn seemed like a fine place to settle down.
It was a small enclave of about a dozen streets, a mile and a half from the center of town. It occupied the ridge of a low bluff that sloped gently to the east, to the marshlands of the Aberjona. The streets were quiet and shaded by trees, the homes modest, many of them constructed before World War II. No one with money to burn would look for a house in the Pine Street neighborhood, yet once people settled there they seemed to stay for a long while. Charles found the house, a ranch-style built in the early 1950s.
