Filled with an average of 180 images and a new design, this people-centric imprint focuses on newsworthy and noteworthy individuals and groups who have built and shaped their communities, according to a press release.
Each book in Arcadia Publishing’s Legendary Locals imprint delves into the history of some of the unique individuals and groups, past and present, who have made a memorable impact on their community throughout its history.
Dauzet-Miller, a volunteer at the Plymouth Historical Museum and longtime resident and educator, has drawn upon numerous collections to showcase some of Plymouth’s past and current residents who have left a lasting impression on the community.
The Houghs helped put Plymouth on the map when they mass produced the Daisy BB gun, employing hundreds of residents; Debra Madonna is a promoter of arts and education who is devoted to children with special needs; Phoebe Patterson helped pave the way for women’s rights; Margaret Dunning’s generosity and vision have provided special buildings for education; and museum volunteer Sanford Burr, whose family history runs deep in Plymouth, loves sharing the community’s heritage. Whether through industry, education, volunteer work, the arts, or philanthropy, the people in Legendary Locals of Plymouth saw a need and acted on it, helping make Plymouth what it is today.
The following is featured in Legendary Locals of Plymouth:
- Founders and leaders
- Business owners
