Excerpt from Leominster, Massachusetts, Historical and Picturesque Those who have never written or assisted in writing a historical work of any kind are not aware of the variety and amount of labor involved. In collecting the material for this volume the town and Church records, the Public Library and Museum, the files of the Leominster Enterprise and previous publications of a historical nature have been placed under contribution for all they contained to throw light upon the early history of the town. In addition to their acknowl edgement I would also refer to Rev. J. D. Miller, to whom I am indebted for the preparation of the entire Educational and the greater portion of the Manufacturing Chapters; to Hon. A. A. Burrage, James T. Joslin, Esq., Mrs. Clara A. Carter, and Albert G. Morse for valuable genealogical data, and to many others who have in various ways con tributed to lighten my labors. The people of Leominster have given the work their cordial sympathy and support, without which it certainly could not have reached its present attractive form and ample proportions, for this and the unusually courteous treatment received I desire to express my personal thanks beyond the conventional forms of acknowl edgement. The work is also largely indebted for its permanent value to the cheerful and ready assistance of Charles A. Joslin, town Clerk, in ex amining the records and in correcting and verifying facts and dates. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

National architectural magazine now in its fifteenth year, covering period-inspired design 1700–1950. Commissioned photographs show real homes, inspired by the past but livable. Historical and interpretive rooms are included; new construction, additions, and new kitchens and baths take their place along with restoration work. A feature on furniture appears in every issue. Product coverage is extensive. Experts offer advice for homeowners and designers on finishing, decorating, and furnishing period homes of every era. A garden feature, essays, archival material, events and exhibitions, and book reviews round out the editorial. Many readers claim the beautiful advertising—all of it design-related, no “lifestyle” ads—is as important to them as the articles.

Incorporated in 1653, Lancaster is the oldest town in Worcester County and the earliest permanent settlement in the central part of the state. It is located in the beautiful Nashua Valley, and its center is near the "Meeting of the Waters," where the north and south branches of the Nashua converge to form one stream that flows north to the Merrimack. It is also the mother town for several nearby communities, including Harvard, Bolton, Leominster, Sterling, Berlin, Boylston, West Boylston, and Clinton. Included in Lancaster are over two hundred vintage images with their exciting stories of the people, places, and landmarks that have contributed to the history of this great town. The book will take the reader on a historic tour to meet the wealthy and philanthropic Thayer family, Boston Brahmins who never lost their love for beautiful Lancaster on the Nashua, and to see their estates, which remain as elegant reminders of a bygone era. In Lancaster, the reader will learn of the Advent pioneers, who laid the groundwork for a small liberal arts institution known at first, simply, as "that New England school" and, later, as Atlantic Union College.
