Legendary Locals Of Amesbury

by Margie Walker, Legendary Locals Of Amesbury Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Legendary Locals Of Amesbury book, Amesbury was incorporated in 1668. The settlers began to build the community, starting the first sawmills on the Powwow River. The community continued to grow with carriage manufacturers starting businesses in town; Jacob Huntington was very influential in this endeavor. The automobile industry was the next major industry with the S.R. Bailey Company leading the way. George McNeil was responsible for unions coming to town, and Amelia Earhart was teaching English as a second language to factory workers. Valentine Bagley made sure that everyone had water, and John Greenleaf Whittier wrote a poem about it, "The Captain's Well." Gregory Hoyt and Jeffrey Donovan left the Amesbury High School drama club behind and made it big in movies and television. Ryan Noon went from designing his own fashions to designing for Nike. Legendary Locals of Amesbury showcases just a select few from the long list of fabulous people who have helped make Amesbury the community it is today.

Amesbury

by Margie Walker, Amesbury Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Amesbury book, In 1968, Amesbury celebrated its 300th anniversary. Residents compiled a cookbook, commemorative coins were sold, dances and plays were held, and townspeople dressed in period costume as part of the many events for the town's tercentenary. Since then, Amesbury has grown considerably, with many new businesses--furniture makers, fine food products, Norman's Restaurant, and clothing shops--emerging. Old mills have been reinvented into spaces for artists, photographers, and other creative outlets. The downtown area has been redeveloped and is a welcoming site as one enters Amesbury. One only needs to sit in Market Square, stroll along the Riverwalk, watch the falls of the Powow River in the Millyard, or listen to a concert in the amphitheater to experience Amesbury's charm. Despite a 1996 vote changing the town into a city, this great community retains the same small-town feel it has held for so many years.

Holliston

by Holliston Historical Society, Holliston Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Holliston book, In 1999, the town of Holliston will celebrate its 275th anniversary, marking an important milestone in the development of this beautiful New England town. For many years, the Holliston Historical Society has maintained an extensive archive of photographs taken over the last century, and it is with great pride that the society presents this compilation of images as a significant contribution to the anniversary celebration. In its historic development of economic, religious, educational, and social institutions, Holliston has always maintained the small-town charm that is so appealing to residents and visitors today. In this work, readers will follow stone walls and trolley tracks to observe workers at the town's straw shop and at the boot manufacturing facility of F.A. Stone. They'll pass early residences on Washington Street and window-shop at J.W. Conger's dry and fancy goods store, taking in some impressive town views along the way. The walking tour of the town presented in this work will preserve images of Holliston taken between 1870 and the present day for generations to come.
