About this title

Synopsis:

To live in Scituate is to live hand in hand with the past. Over three hundred and fifty years of recorded history makes this small coastal town one of the oldest in the United States. Its miles of coastline, ocean breezes, quiet byways, historic sites, and friendly people deem it one of the country's most peaceful and special places to visit. Then and Now: Scituate connects Scituate's past and present in a way that no book has before. Nineteenth-century photographs lead to historic Front Street in Scituate Harbor, where shipping entrepreneur George F. Welch helped rebuild the town after the once prosperous North River shipbuilding era came to an end. In Then and Now: Scituate, Abigail and Rebecca Bates are commended for saving the town from a ransacking by the British during the War of 1812, and the grounds of Dreamwold are opened for a tour of the countryís best-stocked Victorian-era farm.

About the Author:

David Corbin and John Galluzzo have both grown up on the history of the Massachusetts South Shore, each earning a bachelorís degree in history from the state university system. Corbin, a former social studies teacher, now serves as the Scituate Historical Society's Grand Army Hall Committee chairman, guiding the preservation program for the community's oldest public building. Galluzzo is the executive director of the Scituate Historical Society and the coauthor of three other Arcadia books. With Then and Now: Scituate, their first collaborative effort, the authors ask you to join them in discovering the beauty of the town and in learning the Scituate secrets that have kept visitors coming back for hundreds of years.
