Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 073859038X, Paperback)With Milton, the first pictorial history of the town
ever published, local historians Paul Buchanan
and Anthony Sammarco present a nostalgic look at the
development and growth of this well-built and affluent suburb
from 1860 to 1940. Over two hundred and fifty vintage
photographs have been carefully selected from the vast
collection of the Milton Historical Society to create a dazzling
portrait of the town in its heyday.
Milton, once home to the Neponset Indians, became
a small farming community with the arrival of European
settlers. Over time, the town blossomed into an important
industrial and cultural resource for Boston and all of the
South Shore. The vibrant settlement, which used water power
to create the country's first grist mill in 1634, later became
home to the first pianoforte and bass viol manufacturers in
the United States. Through the years, pleasure-seekers from
near and far became attracted to Milton as well, building
summer estates and fond memories in the Milton Hill,
Canton Avenue, and Brush Hill Road areas. Walking tours
of the town even today attract and delight both residents of
milton and visitors from out of town.
