Farm Town to Suburb
The History and Architecture of Weston, Massachusetts
Second Edition, Revised and Expanded
by Pamela W. Fox
with Sarah B. Gilman, Photo Editor
Farm Town to Suburb is a comprehensive history of the Town of Weston, with particular emphasis on the years 1830–2020. Extensively documented and richly illustrated, the book chronicles the economic, social, and political evolution of the town from rural agricultural community to modern Boston suburb. The first 10 chapters are organized by time period and the remaining 20 focus on geographical areas. Originally published in 2001, this second edition brings the book up to date with a new chapter covering 1980 to 2020 and revisions to the original reflecting changes and new discoveries. With Farm Town to Suburb as a guide, readers of today can connect with the past and enrich the present by looking at the development of their own streets and neighborhoods.
Since moving to Weston in 1991, Pam Fox has been researching, writing, and lecturing about Weston history. She serves as a consultant to the Weston Historical Commission and president of the Weston Historical Society.
