The History of the Meeting Houses of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts

Robert Booth

"This study was commissioned, on the 375th anniversary of the town, to tell the story of the successive meeting houses and of the civic and religious activities that took place in them from the 1600s to the mid-1800s. As such, it is not a history of the town—a much larger undertaking—but a look at its governance and worship during that period, with historical context sketched in. The information in the text was drawn mainly from primary sources, which are footnoted."
