For the past three years, the Fryeburg Historical Society has been working with author Brad Fuller to create a new history of Fryeburg, Maine. This book offers a new discussion of how the town evolved based on geology and geography, interactions with native peoples, and its place in the larger context of American history. Further, a wealth of never before published photographs are included. Some are originals by Mr. Fuller, while others are newly restored historical prints.
Now the book is nearing completion, and we are excited to share images and stories from our archives, generous donors, and other primary sources, that enrich our understanding of Fryeburg's origins and development!
We hope you will join us in supporting printing costs, and a series of events to launch the book. Depending on the success of this campaign, these may include an exhibit at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, at Fryeburg Academy; a series of author signings; and a pre-launch event at the Samuel Osgood House, home of the society.
