---- — NORTH ANDOVER — Have you ever contemplated visiting all 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts?

Debbie and Pete Lincoln have done just that and they’ll be telling their story at the Stevens Memorial Library tonight, starting at 6:30. The Lincolns are lifelong Massachusetts residents who—on a whim in 2007—decided to visit every community in the Bay State.

Their whim evolved into a project to photograph, study, and compile information about each city and town. From this mountain of material, they have developed an informative, entertaining, interactive, illustrated program. Filled with anecdotes, little-known history and hidden locales, as well as their own mishaps, they have received positive reviews.

Their presentation is titled “Purgatory to Podunk: A Pictorial Journey Through the 351 Cities and Towns of Massachusetts.” It is part of the library’s Thursday Night Series.

The Stevens Memorial Library is at 345 Main St.
