Norfolk County

Book Description:

The early days of Norfolk County, MA, and its various towns and townships, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 90 Page Booklet, reprinted primarily from two hard-to-find books: the 1839 edition of Historical Collections of Massachusetts by John Warner Barber, and Massachusetts, a Guide to its Places and People, a WPA project. The spiral-bound booklet is printed on 60# paper, with the print enlarged for easier reading. A sheet of clear vinyl has been added to protect the front cover. INSERTED IN THE BOOKLET is a copy of the Map of Massachusetts which accompanied the Barber book. The map is printed in black ink on natural parchtex paper. The communities mentioned include: Avon, Bellingham, Braintree, Brookline, Canton, Cohasset, Dedham, Dorchester, Dover, Foxborough, Franklin, Medfield, Medway, Milton, Needham, North Weymouth, Norwell, Quincy, Randolph, Roxbury, Sharon, Stoughton, Walpole, Wellesley, Weymouth, and Wrentham. The Barber history covers the development of this area until about 1839, while excerpts from the WPA book, give a nostalgic glimpse from a 1940 vantage point, including interesting historical notes, especially as they relate to sightseeing possibilities. The many and diverse topics in the booklet include:the First Railroad in America, Birthplace of John Adams and John Quincy Adams, John Eliot, celebrated Indian Preacher, Major Gen.
