New History Book for the Sesquicentennial

The Maynard 150th Committee wrote a book about the history of Maynard! To commemorate the Town’s 150th anniversary in 2021, “Maynard Massachusetts: A Brief History” has just been published, and is available for sale just in time for the holidays.

As we approach the Town’s 150th birthday, it’s worth asking: How much history can be written about one small town? This book summarizes the first one hundred years, plunges into in-depth content about what has happened in the following fifty years, and includes a crystal ball peek at what might happen in the next fifty. Together, the text and images provide a frame of reference for the people of Maynard to understand where we are now and how we got there.

Cost: $22 (All proceeds go to the Maynard Sesquicentennial Committee in support of the celebration of Maynard’s 150th anniversary in 2021)

The book will be available for sale at the Maynard Library this Saturday, October 31 from 11am to 1pm; and November 21 from 10am to noon. If you can’t make either of those dates, email Lindsayhm@gmail.com to arrange another option. Pay on site by cash, check or in advance on Venmo: (send $22 to @Maynard150 and include your name and “Maynard 150th book” in the note).  Make checks out to “Town of Maynard” and on the memo line
