Lynn [Massachusetts] and Surroundings
Clarence W. Hobbs
Pleasantly combines a factual and comprehensive town history with a folksy storytelling style, making the reading both informative and entertaining. The book begins with a physical description of the region, followed by a recounting of its earliest settlement. The bulk of the work paints a vivid picture of the town as it appeared in the 19th century. All major aspects of a town history are addressed.
