NAHANT, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The town of Nahant received an anonymous donation of $3 million to help fun their land fight against Northeastern University.
For decades, Northeastern University has owned about 15 acres of land in Nahant for their Marine Science Center.
Now, the university plans to expand and renovate their marine science facility.
