Since the publication of Shrewsbury Through Time in 2013, a number of collections of historical photographs have come to light. Photographs from the Harlow family collection help to document the early history of the town and many of its oldest buildings. The Higgins collection covers subjects somewhat more recent. The wonderful set of views, taken just prior to the building of what today is known as Route 9 in 1930, gives us great insight into the many changes that have taken place since then, courtesy of Mr. Frank Morrill. The town of Shrewsbury continues to evolve even today—a number of development projects are in the works or are in the planning stage. These include several medical/retail complexes, a large-scale UPS facility, and a new elementary school. As the town changes, hopefully many of the remaining historic structures will be preserved for future generations to appreciate.
