New England In The Large
New England still remains `new'; still has great potentialities, and the capital, brains, and energy to realize on them.
Old New England
Cut off by the Hudson, Champlain, and St. Lawrence valleys, the New England section of North America is one of the most distinctly marked of all the many geographic regions of the continent.
The New England Climate
New England weather is like a fascinating woman. Its very caprice makes it fascinating. Then why complain about it? Remember the old proverb, Talk of weather is the discourse of fools.
The Flora Of New England
Many of New Englandes most familiar shrubs and plants are immigrants. The buckthorn, the English hawthorn, the barberry, as well as the Black-eyed Susans and the ox-eye daisies which dot the meadows with blossoms, and the hordes of weeds that grow about our yards and barnyards, are almost all European in origin.
Aborigines And Slavery - New England
The Indians of New England have been so long gone as to be almost forgotten. In a few spots, at Gay Head, Mashpee, Orono, and Kingston, some descendants of mixed blood still survive.
The New Englander
The stranger to New England will naturally, be desirous to see and study the `typical New Englander,' for the reputation of that interesting character has gone all over the land.
The Language Of New England
If you study a map of New England you will see that the names of the towns, the counties, and the political divisions generally, the States only excepted, are English.
The New England Village
But the community unit, the township, that gave New England democracy has never become an institution in other sections, where the county, lacking the same intimate identity between the social and political, is the unit of government.
Roads And Highways Of New England
The Mohawk Trail, that excellent automobile road over the Hoosacs, opened in 1915, follows the old route that the fierce Mohawks took on their raids from the Hudson into the Connecticut valley.
New England Architecture
Worthy as have been the efforts of recent generations, New England architecture still connotes the Colonial and the Georgian.
The States Of England
All New England was divided into four parts in the time of the Revolution. To the original four colonies, Vermont, the fourteenth, and Maine, the twenty-third State, have since been added.
Maine
Every one who ever had any connection with Maine is inordinately proud of it, especially if it happens to be through birth.
New Hampshire
Where is New Hampshire? Every schoolboy knows, and yet the question is now before the Supreme Court of the United States for decision.
Vermont
Vermont and Texas are two States that have something in common. Both were independent countries at one time, with a more or less reputable form of government. Vermont had a hard time breaking into the Union.
Massachusetts
Boston is the Athens of America, the Hub of the Universe, and the greatest Irish city in the world. Some of the neighboring mill towns like Lawrence, Lowell, and Fall River ought to have U.S. consuls appointed to them.
Rhode Island
Rhode Island is a small body of water almost surrounded by land, and a large part of its land is entirely surrounded by water. The State is smaller and has a longer shore line, excepting Maine, than any other State in the Union.
Connecticut
Connecticut extends along the Sound for a hundred miles on the turnpike between the great `Commonwealth' and the `Empire State.' The State is in contact with Rhode Island for forty-five miles and with New York for seventy-two.
New York Via Springfield To Boston
This route is marked by red hands from the Connecticut line at Greenwich to New Haven, with blue bands thence to Springfield, and with red from Springfield to Boston.
New York To New Haven
Via the GRAND CONCOURSE AND PELHAM PARKWAY, STAMFORD, and BRIDGEPORT. STATE ROAD all the way. Marked from GREENWICH to NEW HAVEN with red bands on posts and with red arrows.
New Haven To Hartford
This shortest and most direct route, marked with blue bands on poles, follows the Old Boston Post Road along the levels of the Quinnipiac river. An alternate route passes through Durham, Middletown, and Wethersfield (p 110).
Hartford To Springfield
From City Hall go east on Central Row and State St. and north on the Boulevard to the river and the magnificent new $3,000,000 nine arch stone bridge, completed in 1908, on the site of the old wooden toll bridge burned in 1895.
Springfield To Worcester
This is a section of one of the principal east and west trunk lines through New England from the Hudson valley via Pitts-field to Boston. Carrying the traffic of two important trunk lines it is perhaps traversed by more vehicles than any one other route in the heart of New England.
Worcester To Boston
The route from Worcester to Boston traverses an undulating region, largely given over to agriculture and residential estates, Marlboro being the one industrial town of importance. Routes in and 24 combined afford a pleasant variant.
New Haven To Boston Via New London And Providence
Of the four chief routes from New York to Boston this Shore Route is perhaps of second importance after the Springfield Route, as it was second in historical development.
New London To Providence
The beautiful south shore holds countless pictures in every mile. Along no similar stretch of road in America are there so many houses of the Colonial period. Branford, Guilford, and Saybrook, settled before 1644, have escaped the influx of manufacturing and consequent foreign population, and preserve much of their ancient character.
Providence To Boston
This route, following State Roads, marked in blue from the Massachusetts line, just outside Pawtucket, goes by way of North Attleboro, a prosperous jewelry town, and continues through farming country to Walpole and Norwood, a book-making town; thence through historic and residential Dedham, and by the parkways to Boston.
New York To Boston Via Waterbury, Hartford, Willimantic, And Woonsocket
This route, though little used today as a direct route from New York to Boston, offers a pleasing variation and many attractions and interests.
Hartford To Boston
This route, the Middle Road of Colonial times, traverses the eastern Connecticut highland through the industrial districts of Manchester, the home of Cheney Silks, and Willimantic, the thread city.
New York Via The Hudson To Alban
This route follows the course of the Hudson river valley along the eastern side of the Hudson river, but keeps the river in view for only short distances.
New York To Poughkeepsie
This section of the route follows Riverside Drive and North Broadway, commanding beautiful views of the Hudson and the Berkshires. Beyond Peekskill it follows the new State Road through the hills, away from the river.
