Illustrating the town from the post-Civil War to 1960, the authors examine a variety of topics, including the changes in the areaas geography and local transportation as well as the contributions made by famous residents such as Helen Keller. Compiled from personal collections and the archives of the Wrentham Historical Commission, this visual history contains over 200 rare and diverse scenes. See how the town changed as the horse and oxen were left behind for trains, and later, automobiles. Relive the big band era in the 1920s and 1930s with tantalizing scenes from the Lake Pearl Park and dance hall.Ir conrinued ro provide schooling ro boys and girls unril public high schools began, and when enrollmenr dropped ro where rhe academy could no longer conrinue, rhe building was renred ro rhe rown of Wrenrham ro be used for rheir Cenreranbsp;...
