Synopsis

Using 134 sites scattered across the county's 18 towns and the city of Hudson, the author weaves an authoritative and well-documented group of narrative histories linking the evidence of the landscape with the underlying economic and social history of each community. Each town narrative is accompanied by individual site descriptions, which can be used as an on-site guide to local history. The author contends that the economic development of a community is its storyline, which can be read, to a greater or lesser degree, in representative surviving structures. These landmarks give concrete form to the abstract concept of the historical past, linking the written record with the present landscape.

Peter H. Stott is an industrial historian with twenty years experience in New York and New England. He is the author of A Guide to the Industrial Archeology of Boston Proper from 1996-2006. Mr. Stott worked with UNESCO's World Heritage Centre in Paris, before returning to his roots in New England, where he is currently at work again with the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
