Attracting many to the heart of northern Vermont each year are Morristown and its neighbors-Johnson, Wolcott, Elmore, Stowe, and Hyde Park. Morristown, seen as Lamoille County's economic engine, is an upbeat community with a rich history to which each of the surrounding towns has contributed. However, in the bustle of new growth and development, it often seems as if that history has been forgotten. Around Morristown is an invitation to relax and explore the Morristown of yesterday, a time when life was less hectic, when sprawl was not a concern, and when the Bijou Theatre had only one screen. Included among the early photographs of people and organizations, schools and churches, businesses and industries are the Randall Hotel, Governor Hendee, the Centennial Block, and Alexander Copley.

Author Shaun C. Bryer grew up in the village of Morrisville, graduated from Peoples Academy, and is currently studying at St. Michael's College, in Colchester. A tour guide for the Morristown Historical Society's Noyes House Museum for three years and current director, he has carefully selected from the society's archive some 200 stunning images, most of which have never before been published. By combining these images with insightful commentary, he has created a delightful book through which all may learn, share, and recall the past that helped to shape the Morristown that residents treasure today.
