Summary

Nestled Between the Neponset River and the Blue Hills Reservation is the postcard-perfect New England town of Milton, Massachusetts. Founded in 1640, its gentle riverbanks were soon transformed by some of the first mills in the colonies, and later an industrial boom drew tides of immigrants from across the seas. Local author and noted historian Anthony Sammarco brings together a fascinating collection of his best columns from the Milton Times to chronicle the remarkable history of Milton. With stories of extraordinary residents such as the physician and artist Dr. William Rimmer and tales of local innovations such as the Granite Railway, Sammarco charts the evolution of this prominent town.
