Tucked away at midnight forests of Vermont�s Northeast
Kingdom, St. Johnsbury was once quite often unbroken wilderness
when first chartered in 1786. Swinging axes quickly made way
for the burgeoning split-level city, with stately major Street
homes on St. Johnsbury undeniable presiding in grandeur over the
bustling trade of Railroad road under. Peggy Pearl brings
a decidedly human aspect to this entire history,
wandering the graves of Mount friendly Cemetery and bringing
to lifestyles the tales of these tanners, cobblers, millworkers and
brick makers who made St. Johnsbury their domestic. With excerpts from classic newspapers just like the Caledonian-Record and the Farmer�s bring in, Pearl unfolds the transformation from quiet mill city into picturesque production hub of Caledonia County.
