You can call me Ray

Meet Lala Ray and her son Bob. The Ray family grew vegetables off Cambridge Street near the Woburn border. That’s the family farmhouse.

In 1968, Graham Brothers Corp. bought the Ray farm and developed it. Here’s one of the results:

The Ray farmhouse is long gone. That spot how hosts a restaurant. For a while, it was Towne House.

Now it’s Bickford’s Grille. And the former Ray farmland? It’s now Ray Avenue, of course.
