Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 073854552X, Paperback)Townsend is nestled comfortably in the north-central region of the state, on the border of New Hampshire. Its location is close enough to major travel routes that it continues to grow, yet far enough from large cities to retain elements of its rural character. Within the history of Townsend, three distinct sections of the town emerged: Townsend Harbor, Townsend Center, and West Townsend. Each thrived as a separate center with its own businesses, schools, and colorful residents. Together they share their stories and memories to create the complete history of Townsend. From the incorporation of the town in 1732 to the thriving mill industry of the 19th century; from the Rufus Porter murals covering the walls of an upstairs room at the Reed Homestead to Elsa Williams' mission to bring the art of needlepoint to Townsend; and from a 25,000-person Red Cross fund-raiser held at Wyndecrest in 1922 to the tradition of gathering around the common for concerts on summer evenings, Townsend remains devoted to remembering history and celebrating community.
