Concord (Massachusetts)
Images of America Series

by Sarah Chapin

Copyright 1997, Arcadia Publishing
128 pages, Softcover, 9.25"x6.5"

From the back cover:
In this delightful new photographic history, Concord, Massachusetts, is brought to life through extraordinary images and lively text. Readers are led through an exploration of the town's history, beginning in 1850, when the community's business and political life was concentrated along the Milldam from Monument Square to the Old Burying Ground.

The Concord Free Public Library's special collections department made its repository of glass-plate images and photographs available for this historical view of Concord. Portraits of famous legislators and authors - such as Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson - vistas from rivers and hills, and a rare stereoscopic print of the 1875 centennial celebration are all included in these wonderful pages.

Author Sarah Chapin is a private music teacher as well as a research scholar at the Concord Free Public Library. With Concord, Massachusetts, she has put together a photographic representation of the people of Concord living creatively with their remarkable past. Her insightful book is ideal for residents interested in their heritage and for visitors looking for a comprehensive history of this truly fascinating town.
