The Maynard 150th Committee wrote a book about the history of Maynard! To commemorate the Town’s 150th anniversary in 2021, “Maynard Massachusetts: A Brief History” has just been published, and is available for sale just in time for the holidays.
As we approach the Town’s 150th birthday, it’s worth asking: How much history can be written about one small town? This book summarizes the first one hundred years, plunges into in-depth content about what has happened in the following fifty years, and includes a crystal ball peek at what might happen in the next fifty. Together, the text and images provide a frame of reference for the people of Maynard to understand where we are now and how we got there.
Cost: $22 (All proceeds go to the Maynard Sesquicentennial Committee in support of the celebration of Maynard’s 150th anniversary in 2021)
The book is available at 6 Bridges Gallery, 63 Nason Street (corner of Nason and Summer), Thursdays through Saturdays, 12-5.
