Celebrate the publication of Newbury,a pictorial history of the town authored by the museum and part of Arcadia Press's "Images of America" series. With over 200 photographs from the museum's collection, the book offers stories of Plum Island, Devil's Den, prominent Newbury citizens, Old Town, the Parker River, historic homes, Byfield, and much more.
From the book:
If the first settlers of Newbury were to visit their town today, they would find many familiar scenes – the gently flowing Parker River, the great salt marsh dotted with haystacks, bucolic lanes, giant rock outcroppings, and land tilled for farming. They would even recognize some of the early framed houses built by the early stalwart families. In many respects, Newbury is a town untouched by the centuries.
