More Info on This Book: West Bridgewater

Previously known as West Parish, West Bridgewater was once the geographic center of Old Bridgewater, an area consisting of what is today Brockton, East Bridgewater and Bridgewater. The town’s simple agrarian lifestyle can still be seen today in its open spaces, family farms and Colonial historic prominence.

In a new book by Arcadia Publishing, “Images of America: West Bridgewater,” resident and local historian James E. Benson uses over 200 vintage photographs to bring readers on a nostalgic journey down memory lane.

Highlights of “West Bridgewater”:

Features never before seen vintage photographs from both public and private collections

Showcases images of long disappeared scenes in the town, as well as familiar landmarks and faces

Provides several street scenes of yesteryear with horses, carriages and trolleys

Includes snapshots of President Eisenhower and House Speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill

“West Bridgewater” will be available for sale Aug. 17. Price of the book is $21.99. A portion of the profit from the sales of the book will go to the new West Bridgewater Museum. Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers or through Arcadia Publishing at 888-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
