About this title

Synopsis:

In the first photographic history of Glocester, Rhode Island, Chepachet native Edna Whitaker Kent presents a remarkable collection of over 200 historic photographs never before available to the public. The many views of Glocester homes, streets, mills, farms, schools, people, and churches have been compiled from private collections to be published for the first time. The historic villages of Harmony, East Glocester, Spring Grove, Cherry Valley, West Glocester, Hawkins' Village,
Clarkville, Williams' Mills, and Chepachet are all represented in this volume, which spans the period of time from 1826 to 1992. Two unique historical events are comprehensively illustrated: Dorr's Rebellion--during which two duly-elected Rhode Island
governors vied for power--and the tragic shooting of one of North America's first elephants at Chepachet Bridge. In addition, Glocester, Rhode Island depicts the community's proud history of legendary pageants, gatherings, Old Home Days, and parades, which have attracted visitors to the region for many years.
