Once dubbed "the Grand Lady of Recreation" in Bridgewater, Mary J. Allen was a lifelong resident. A charter member of the Recreation Commission, she served for 30 years on the board. Mrs. Allen was a determined advocate of open space and played a central role in the acquisition of the land preserved for the recreation facility. She devoted countless hours of research to the development of the pavilion and was often found there enjoying the grounds. In 2000, she was honored as Bridgewater's "Person of the Century."
