Excerpt from History of the Town of Manchester: Essex County, Massachusetts, 1645-1895The interest on the part of the people in the Two Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary is due in large measure to the Historical Society, which was formed in 1886, and which has made its object the awakening of interest in the history of the town, and the collecting of materials in view of the approaching Quarter-Millennial. Regular meetings of the Society have been held, and papers read by the members on various matters of interest connected with the town's earlier or later history. These papers, after being discussed, have in some instances been deposited in the archives of the Society. A few donations have been received from members and others of old books, records, manuscripts, etc., as the nucleus of a Historical Collection. Above all, a stimulus has been given to antiquarian interest and historical research, dusty cobwebs have been brushed from the walls of memory, fading recollections and dim traditions have received new freshness and life, and some things of value to the historian have been rescued from the oblivion into which they were fast passing.The initiatory steps towards a celebration of the Two Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary and the preparation of a History of the Town, were taken by the Historical Society in the appointment of a committee to bring the matter before the town at the annual meeting, March 20, 1894.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
