The History of Plainville Connecticut, 1640-1918


Book Description

This is a comprehensive history of the beginnings, trials, and flourishing of Plainville Connecticut. As Gertrude Castle Nystrom wrote in the preface to her father’s book, “This history of the beginnings of Plainville, Connecticut, covering the period from the time it was a part of Farmington up to the year 1918, was written by [Henry Castle] as an act of love for history… To obtain some of his material, he walked to Farmington and back four miles each way, every day one summer in order to study town records.” Castle’s dedication to local history has preserved a peaceful town in word and photograph.
