|About the Book|
Marshfield, a seaside retreat famous for its beaches, hotels, and ocean views, has always shone in summer. It was the home of some of the countrys leading families, specifically the Winslows and the Websters, and worldrenowned concert singer Adelaide Phillips, as well as the site of the first radio broadcast in America, engineered by Reginald Fessenden at Brant Rock on Christmas Eve 1906. Today the towns various villages retain the identities that defined them in the early 1900s, from hardworking Green Harbor to beachy Brant Rock to serene Sea View to the rolling Marshfield Hills. Marshfield has celebrated its heroes, survived the great Ocean Bluff fire of 1941, and, most importantly, preserved its history through several historic preservation projects around town.
