History of Bradford and Warner Explored in New Book
Local historians team up to tell story through vintage photographs
The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Bradford and Warner from local authors Laurie Buchar and Rebecca Courser. Featuring vintage photographs from the collections of the Bradford and Warner Historical Societies, Bradford and Warner affords a glimpse into the mutual past of these two towns.
In the mid-1700s, Bradford and Warner were tiny settlements of log dwellings that emerged from the wilderness in tandem. A gunshot fired in
would resound in the Mink Hills and call neighbors to help in times of need.
This blend of independence and reliance built these quintessential communities
into what they are today.
