Description - Charlton by William O Hultgren

It all began with a Boston Globe article touting the bucolic loveliness of the sleepy town of Charlton. Since 1755, generations of farming families had been left in Edenic seclusion. Cows outnumbered citizens, horse 'n buggies ruled the roads and one-room schoolhouses brought together children of all ages. Suddenly, thousands of city dwellers descended on the peaceful community, looking for the "farm life." Charlton: Picturing Change chronicles a century marked by tremendous trials, triumphs and transitions. Through never-before-seen images, become witness to a rapidly vanishing rural way of life. Authors William O. Hultgren and Quentin R. Kuehl lovingly document how a town rooted in tradition came to proudly embrace not only its own history, but also the new neighbors who came seeking a slice of home.
