The 1830s were the heyday of the formation of anti-slavery societies. Associations were established at the town, county and state levels. Northfield, Massachusetts held a meeting from March 28 to April 7, 1836 to form an anti-slavery society. This article reports on the resolutions and constitution for the society which were adopted at that meeting. The three officers of the society were prominent members of the town of Northfield. The Greenfield Gazette and Franklin Herald was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from June 26, 1827 to June 27, 1837. It changed its name to the Gazette & Mercury.
