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.
