The Weston Historical Society is sponsoring the second edition of Pam Fox’s book Farm Town to Suburb: The History and Architecture of Weston, Massachusetts, 1830 to 2020. The 2001 book has been extensively revised. A new 24-page chapter with color photographs brings the book up to date, including recent town history and physical changes like new buildings and town center improvements. The original 30 chapters have been revised to reflect new research, correct errors, and record changes. The 736-page book includes 1075 images, 62 of which are new to this edition. Ten percent of the purchase price will be donated to the historical society.

In 2002, Farm Town to Suburb was awarded a Certificate of Commendation from the American Association for State and Local History.

Fox said of the new edition: “I feel today, as I did when the book was first published, that understanding the town’s history helps build a sense of connection to the community and investment in its future. I hope this new edition will find an audience among new residents and those who have lived in Weston for years without being aware of clues to the past that are all around us.”
