Our Silent Auction in November celebrates our hometown! We have a special collection of books by local authors centered on this wonderful South Shore community. Come in to view and place a bid on Marshfield, the Autobiography of a Pilgrim Town; Marshfield, a Town of Villages; Marshfield Country Club, Our First 75 Years; and for kids, Patriots in Revolt: Marshfield 1773-1776.  

An especially interesting volume (The Red House, Being a Mostly Accurate Account of New England's Oldest Continuously Lived-In House) explores generations of the Hatch family through the author's unique perspective growing up in a historic home. No compilation of Marshfield publications would be complete without Ralph Fletcher's humorous autobiography. And finally, you'll find cookbooks full of recipes assembled by Furnace Brook Elementary, Saint Christine’s Parish, and the Marshfield YWCA. 

Every one of these books offers a fascinating glimpse into our local history. Whether your family settled in Marshfield centuries ago or you have just recently made it your new home, don't miss this chance to own one of these collectible heirlooms!
