Meet Ms. Marian Case

WESTON

Meet Marian Roby Case.

She was a feisty spinster, an “odd stick” wearing frumpy clothes, who created a summer agricultural school for boys in Weston.

Now the 62 acres of land where she spent a fortune instilling “her boys” with a sense of respect for growing things is being sold.

Read more about Marian Case and the future of Case Estates in tomorrow’s Globe West.
