Olmstead. Whitman takes the reader on a trolley ride through the quaint center, which still evokes that small-town feeling, and the town park, which was designed by legendary architect Frederick L. Early industries included various mills, foundries, and tack factories; later industry was defined by prosperous shoe manufacturing, as Whitman was home to many of the country's largest shoe factories. Centrally located between Boston and Cape Cod, the town played a significant role in the formative years of the country. Most commonly known as the home of the world-famous Toll House cookie, Whitman has a rich history that goes well beyond the cookie jar. Through more than two hundred photographs, this nostalgic tour shows the schools, churches, commerce, and the lives of Whitman residents, all of which bring back memories of a simpler time.

I came across this book one day while I was using a search engine to find information on Whitman. I have to say that I found the facts interesting and I absolutely loved the older pictures. It was interesting to look at the old pictures and compare to what is not there today or what is still the same. The book has comments and pictures of the police stand in the center of town. My father was a police officer in the 60's and 70's and I can remember him directing. Jean H said Good book on Whitman. Oh fun. My mother's home town Wanted to know more and it provided more!
