Overview

Hobart has been a flourishing community since 1847, when founder George Earle named the settlement after his brother Frederick Hobart Earle. George, from Falmouth, England, was an entrepreneur, architect, artist, and innovative and savvy businessman who enticed bourgeoning rail lines, industry, and various religious institutions to locate to Hobart, all of which helped create a bustling exporting community before 1900. Images of America: Hobart chronicles 160 years (1847-2007) of this hard-working community with more than 200 images, spanning from the Old Mill to the establishment of the city's first historic district. The images reflect events and developments that helped make Hobart the thriving city it is today.
