Chronological History of Chestertown, Maryland, 1900 – 1993 is a fascinating little title, which I’ve just added to my library. The work abstracts data from the minutes of the Chestertown Town Council and two local newspapers, the Enterprise and the Kent County News. It also includes a narrative chapter called shared memories from 1949 to 1955 and lots of photographs. I received the title Friday, after locating it on Amazon and I’ve enjoyed thumbing through the title. It is loaded with fascinating information and will be a valuable Eastern Shore reference in my collection. Thanks to the authors, Joan O. Horsey and Carrie E. Shreiber, for producing this helpful book.
