The second volume to chronicle Agawam's rich history, Agawam and Feeding Hills Revisited pays close attention to the people who lived and worked in Agawam, from schoolchildren, farmers, police officers, business owners, and mill workers to aeronautical engineer Bob Hall, who designed the ill-fated Bulldog and Cicada racers. Agawam was incorporated as a town in 1855, but its history began with the construction of the first house in 1635. The charm of this town has been preserved here with nearly two hundred vintage images and compelling text.
