About this title

Synopsis:

In 1803, the North Parish of Harwich voted to become the town of Brewster in honor of Elder William Brewster, one of the most distinguished and revered Pilgrims of the Mayflower. As times changed, the people of Brewster turned from farming to fishing and from salt making to tall ships. They traveled the sea, wheeling and dealing with merchants in nearly every port on earth, fighting pirates, and surviving typhoons. Those who returned brought home to Brewster a measure of wealth and sophistication that is an integral part of this little town's lively history. When the age of sail faded, the town looked to a quieter life. Brewster, with its eleven miles of pristine beaches, became the perfect tourist destination.

Brewster tells the unique story of a town that prospered through the good times and held on amazingly during the bad times. It presents captivating photographs of the residents' struggle for existence as farmers, fisherman, and sailors. The book shows what the barbershop looked like and where the early residents of Brewster lived, played, and went to church. Brewster captures the charming moments of a time gone by.

About the Author:

The Brewster Historical Society, established in 1964, is dedicated to preserving and sharing the proud heritage of Brewster. With images from the society's vast archival collection and the contributions of its members, the society has compiled this compelling town history for all to enjoy.
