WELCOME TO OUR USA COUSINS

This page is aimed at those of you in the USA who have historical connections with Odell - especially those of you in Concord MA which was founded by Peter Bulkeley from Odell in 1635.  We welcome visitors to Odell which these days is about half the population it was in 1635!  Anyway you will find a welcome in The Bell and of course in All Saints Church.
