Looking to buy some medieval armour? In the mood for an orchestra of typewriters? Perhaps you’d like to sift through handcrafted cashmere scarves while chatting up Indiana Jones’ lovely co-star? Know where to find America’s oldest baseball diamond, New England’s smallest town, or Grover Cleveland’s impossibly-young (and spitting-image) grandson (think about it)?
New England Notebook offers the answers to these questions and more in a blend of the region’s most singular and noteworthy nuggets of history, people, and culture. This is a collection of colorful facts, stories and anecdotes, plus a savvy selection of unusual eats, goods, services and events. Whether it’s finding a little-known museum of Titanic memorabilia, an underwater escape artist, or the smallest bar, both casual readers and dedicated lovers of all things New England will share a hearty—and humorous—sense of, “Who knew?”
Written by a native New Englander and WCVB on-air reporter, New England Notebook goes beyond the merely curious, though it offers plenty of intriguing tidbits, unusual museums, fascinating characters, and many pieces of trivia and little-known facts.
