The history of the county covers the years from 1637 to 1898. The cities of Taunton, New Bedford, and Fall River are given lengthy, individualized coverage. Subjects covered, to varying degrees for these three cities, include early settlement, industries, wars, schools, newspapers, and education, among others. A gazetteer of the county's towns is also included. Over four hundred pages are devoted to biographical sketches.
