Known as “the leap-year town,” Holbrook was incorporated on February 29, 1872, after separating from nearby Randolph. During the Civil War, the area became a shoe-manufacturing center, which led to an increasing population, economic growth, and a desire to become an independent town. Holbrook tells the story of this small New England town through vintage images compiled by the Holbrook Historical Society. Chapters devoted to historic houses, civics, sports, religion, education, and notable citizens, such as Elisha Holbrook and George Spear, will delight longtime residents as well as newcomers.
