Local history web site

Following the success of researching and publishing the book "Little Ealing A Walk Through History", the group of EFRA members have created a new web site that will present information about the Little Ealing area.

The web site now contains the first project - a history of Little Boston House which is famous for once being the residence of John Quincy Adams, the 6th president of the USA.
