By Carol W. Kimball
Hardcover, 312 pages w/ photos
Mystic, Connecticut is one of New England's most picturesque villages and it has a colorful history to match.
Historic Glimpses is a collection of wonderful vignettes highlighting the history of Mystic and its surrounding communities,
written by local historian Carol W. Kimball and culled from the pages of The Day newspaper.
More than 130 columns and illustrations revisit the people, places, events, businesses and vessels that have built, shaped,
and impacted the region—from explorers to entrepreneurs, quarries to factories, tragic fires to celebrations, and fishing
smacks to warships. Readable and perusable, it provides fascinating insight into this wonderful and special place. Historic Glimpses will stir
memories for some and have others discovering new and surprising episodes of the past.
