Photographs, we follow the town from the 1840s to the eve of World War II; from its roots in a region dependent on farming, forest resources, and the surrounding rivers and bays,
to the era of its transformation into a college town which strove to retain its rural charm.
For all who have lived and grown up in Durham, and for newcomers, students, and friends searching for connections to the quiet past amidst these fast-moving times, this book provides an avenue to reminiscence and revelation.

About the Author
"An uncommon transformation" is the phrase used by archivists William E. Ross and Thomas M. House to describe the changes the small town of Durham has experienced over the years. As we approach the end of a millennium, this new book looks back at over a century of Durham's history and its significant and intricate relationships, first with the rural countryside, and later with the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, which moved from Hanover to Durham in 1893.
