Yes, we sell them at the society, around $10.00 I believe. I've been meaning
to pick one up myself. Being a new director I guess I need one...........

Todd and Friends,
I have a book titled "1783-1983 Reflections of Longmeadow" that has in it a
map of the "Land Grants of 1645, Longmeadow, MA" with the names of those
first settlers attached to their properties. The map was drawn in 1940 by
Harry Andrew Wright. The book is published by the Longmeadow Historical
Society. In the book are 1880s photos of the Keep Family farmhouse and
Colton's General Store.
It features Longmeadow personalities Samuel Colton, John Chapman, Eleazer
Williams, Stephen Williams, and Mary Ann Booth.
If I can be of any help, please ask.
Sandy Di Nanni
