So, You Think You Know the South Coast?
Facts, Folklore, Trivia and Treasures
Author: Henry Quinlan
Photographs by Caroline Murphy
The book lays out a significant base knowledge for each community on the South Coast of Massachusetts, including famous men and women who have made significant contributions to each community. A section entitled “Do You Know?” provides some lesser-known information that contributes to the distinctness of each city or town; some photographs that will test the reader’s knowledge of buildings and objects that are commonly seen but not necessarily recognized for what they are, and some trivia that tests some well-known and lesser-known facts.
The book ends with the “Treasures” of the South Coast. These are the institutions and places that make the South Coast a remarkable place to live and work. Some are cultural, some are natural but each contributes to the quality of life that is available on the South Coast. The region and its people have something distinct and appealing to offer everyone.
South Coast Towns: Achusnet, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Fall River, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Rochester, Wareham, Westport,
“A book that will educate, enrich and entertain you.”
