Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788433164, CD-ROM)

his book covers five different, yet related topics, four of which are early town histories. The towns covered are: Oxford, MA; Dudley, MA; Webster, MA; and Woodstock, CT (originally in MA). Each town's history is discussed from its formation and settlement up to the time that the book was originally published, 1874. The first section in the book is a very in depth look at the Reformation in France. The author hoped that a look at the Reformation might provide an insight into what drove a small group of thirty Huguenot families to leave behind all that they knew and head to the wilderness of the New World to establish a place where they might worship freely. This book covers the town histories of Sturbridge, Charlton and Southbridge, Massachusetts. Each town's history is discussed from its formation and settlement, up to the time that the book was originally published. The histories of Sturbridge and Charlton include the petition for the town and grant, the origin of the name of the town, a list of manufacturing companies, the schools and churches of the area, and biographical information on some of the predominant members of the community. The history of Southbridge contains all of the above, plus more detailed information about the town including the new roads and highways, the cemetery, a broad list of manufacturing companies, and a history of the churches. (1874), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, new index, 557 + 598 pp.
