Nashua People and Places

Meri Goyette and The Nashua Historical Society


A city comes to life because of its people. People, who through their personal endeavors and life work encompass honesty, compassion, ability, integrity, spirit, action, and vision, are the fabric of the city. Like the comforting city tree lights, which brighten the dark, these mentioned individuals, and innumerable others, have benefited us all. Nashua People and Places is a celebration of all their lives.

This heavily illustrated book is the result of a collaborative effort between The Nashua Historical Society and author Meri Goyette. Selected historical details of New Hampshire’s second largest city are presented with fascinating anecdotes and many black and white photographs.
