Eamon referenced key points on an early map of Franklin including the fact that at one time, Dorchester was a neighboring community. Yes, the same Dorchester. It used to extend from the coast far inland and then communities split off from it and it shrunk to its current size.

Eamon spent a couple of years researching and writing the book. He has many stories to tell and if you have good history to share, he would like to hear that too!
