Travel back to the earliest days of Woburn, when life was simple and farming was the chief occupation of its settlers. Then, continue your journey as Woburn transforms itself into a small industrialized city on the brink of the twentieth century. Founded in 1640 by a team of seven able men from Charlestown, Woburn grew, prospered, recorded, and documented its history, providing a legacy for generations to come. Through the weaving of stories and photographs, we witness this growth and marvel at the transformation of village to city. As you delve into these intimate glimpses of Woburn, you will be introduced to rare photographs of Civil War combatants and view significant historical documents, such as the "Bloody Butchery" broadside, which details the battles of Lexington and Concord replete with Woburn heroes. You will be mesmerized by the old-time photographs of landmarks such as "Busy Bend" and "Horn Pond." You will see a Woburn "celebrated for its greenhouses, tanneries, and ice-cutting industries." And you will meet Woburn's celebrities: the famous, the not so famous, and the infamous.

Margaret Chase Smith's Skowhegan ( Images of America (Arcadia Publishing), Sleeper, Frank
6 Sleeper, Frank Margaret Chase Smith's Skowhegan ( Images of America (Arcadia Publishing)
Arcadia Publishing 1996 0738564214 / 9780738564210 1st Trade Paperback USED - Slight corner curl, Very Good 
Called ." . . the most influential woman in the history of American politics," Senator Margaret Chase Smith always carried with her a strong connection to her roots in Skowhegan, Maine. How did her years and experiences in this community influence her strength of character and lifetime commitment to public service? Author Frank H. Sleeper has searched local archives to bring us rare photographs and new connections between Skowhegan and its famous senator. In this illuminating pictorial history, readers enjoy unique views of Skowhegan, with its historic buildings and riverfront, where Senator Smith spent her first forty years. Her strong convictions and tolerance for dissent, especially apparent in her famous Declaration of Conscience" speech against Senator Joe McCarthy, may well have come from her background in Skowhegan.
