New Book on Windham, ME History

Time for a good book? If you're interested in Windham history, you may enjoy reading Kay Soldier's latest book about Windham's "Northeast Road" -- the old time name for Route 202 or Gray Road.
Read about the old Revolunary soldiers who settled in the Eastern part of Windham and chuckle at Charles Legrow's descriptions of every house and settler from the Rotary (or Foster's Corner) to the Gray line. Every graveyard, every school and all the houses, and all the people who lived there -- as memorialized by one of our town's best historians -- Charles Legrow.

Genealogists will have a field day with the family details.

Read about some of Windham's finest people including Tony Pecoraro, Walter Reeves, Flora Lamb and others -- and read about the Days Gone By and what the different seasons meant to some of us old timers.
This is not an official publication of the Maine Genealogical Society, but rather a new book by one of our members.  If you would like a copy, please send $20 per copy to Kay Soldier, 114 Tandberg Trail, Windham, Maine 04062 and she will mail it out right away.
