With Exeter, Carol Walker Aten presents a rare glimpse of the history of the town from the birth of photography through the first decades of the twentieth century. This marvelous collection of images celebrates Exeter's rich history and long-standing traditions of commerce, education, and politics. Since Exeter's settlement in 1638 as one of the first four towns in New Hampshire, the community has benefited from a wealth of natural and human resources integral to its prosperity. Fertile land, dense forests, and bountiful waterways have supported the development of an industrious community of tradesmen and scholars, factory owners and shopkeepers. Ms. Aten's informed selection of vintage photographs demonstrates how much, and in some cases, how very little, Exeter has changed over time. Carol Walker Aten is director of the American Independence Museum. To create this work she has carefully selected pictures from the archives of her museum, the Exeter Historical Society, Phillips Exeter Academy, the Exeter Newsletter, and numerous other private collections.
