New Boston Historical Society (New Boston, N.H.)
Arcadia Publishing, Jan 1, 2004 - History - 128 pages
For nearly two hundred fifty years, New Boston has been a wonderful combination of pioneering and industrious spirit, New England traditions, and picturesque landscape. This book describes the unique heritage of the Molly Stark Cannon; bicentennial homesteads that doubled as summer tourist destinations; natural oddities such as Frog Rock; and man-made sites such as an old military bombing range that is now used to track satellites. Why was New Boston known as the Gravity Center of the World? How did a single farm once supply the largest hotels in Boston with meat and dairy products? Historic photographs reveal a town steeped in tradition-on the farm; at work, school, or play; and during prosperous and troubled times.
