Paxton, MA History
Landmarks and Memories of Paxton, MA,
by Roxa Howard Bush,
and other materials
|We're happy to republish a
remarkable history of Paxton, Massachusetts, written by a person who without question knew more
about the history of Paxton, MA than anyone else living at the time she prepared it.
Roxa Howard Bush was a careful and
very complete local historian of Paxton, and despite the brevity of her book (62
pages of text, plus pictures), it is a remarkably complete study of the
history of the Town of Paxton. The book was privately printed in
1923. We do not know the number of copies printed, but we do know that
few copies are still extant and even fewer available in the rare book
This CD-ROM is now
Unlike many local histories that are long on
flowery language and short on names, places, and dates, Landmarks and
Memories of Paxton is densely
packed with names, and for that reason will be of particular interest to family
historians and genealogists. To see a typical page, click on the thumbnail below:
In addition to Landmarks and Memories of
Paxton, the CD-ROM includes historical topographic maps of Paxton and the
area surrounding. It also includes separate high-resolution copies of the
photographs in the text for greater legibility and ease of use. If you
live now in the Paxton area, or if your ancestors lived there at one time, we

available for the reduced price of $9.95 plus shipping and handling. Click "Add to shopping
