The Brockton Historical Society invites visitors to spend a fun "Sunday in the Park with George - Keith" in a recreated pop-up Campello Village of 1917. Visitors will see buildings that represent a slice of life. Visitors can ask the villagers "What was the Keith Theater? Who owned the small shops? What was it like attending the Huntington School? How did you feel when you arrived as an immigrant? Did you work in a shoe factory?" One of the most famous was run by George E. Keith - the WalkOver Company. Brockton today is a city of immigrants. By connecting face to face with our past, our purpose is to create common ground to build understanding and pride in our city.
