Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Amesbury tells the story of an extraordinary town with an unusually broad manufacturing history. Settled eighteen years after the Pilgrims landed, and chartered in 1668, Amesbury's earliest industries included mills, shipyards, and a busy ferry operation. Amesbury is extremely rich in meticulously preserved Victorian homes, and the four miles of Merrimack River riverfront that wrap along Amesbury's Point Shore area provide a remarkably beautiful year-round panorama. Amesbury's links to the past include the great statesman Josiah Bartlett and poet John Greenleaf Whittier, who penned his best works here, as well as poets Harriet Prescott Spofford and Robert Frost.

About the Author

Charles J. Pouliot is the third generation of his family to be born and raised in Amesbury. With Amesbury, he shares over one hundred eighty postcards collected over many years, uses innumerable sources of information gathered since childhood, and provides family tales and bygone facts scribed into history by Amesbury's founding fathers. Amesbury is a guided and informative tour through an interesting and historically unique town-one with a proud early-American heritage and a living story to tell.
