Guide to the Coastal Towns of New England
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
New England is cranberry bogs, clipper ships, widow's walks, saltbox houses, white-steepled churches on village greens . . . . Coastal New England is a marvelous blend of America's past, present, and future. It is the home of Plymouth Rock, Native Americans, Quaker meeting houses, Salem witchcraft, colonial America, Newport's America's Cup races, Yale, Harvard, old mansions, rocky seacoasts and lighthouses, and the U.S. Coast Guard. Each of the 77 towns and cities covered here, from Connecticut to Maine, includes historical descriptions of the general area and fairly well-detailed descriptions of historical sites (museums, mansions, parks, restored plantations, and seaports). Seasonal tourist information for each attraction, as well as a list of nearby parks, beaches, and other recreational areas, is provided. An added feature is an introduction to the various styles of period architecture prevalent throughout these states. Recommended for most travel collections.
