Milford, Massachusetts, incorporated in 1780, rests on the cusp of the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor. Granite and manufacturing jobs drew immigrants to this small town during the Industrial Revolution to form a richly textured community. In this collection of the best of his columns, local historian Paul E. Curran chronicles the lives and achievements of many who left indelible imprints on Milford. Some contributed distinctive architecture, such as the stately Town Hall and the only Irish round tower in the country. Others offered gifts for the mind--major contributions to the national library system and the original version of the children's classic The Little Engine that Could. There were extraordinary athletes, intrepid travelers and those who marked the social conscience through personal sacrifice. Milford Chronicles celebrates the spirit of all who contributed to the community's rich and enduring history.
