Meet the ancestors of Westbrook, Maine: the businessmen, artists, inventors, soldiers and ballplayers whose names linger on street signs and buildings and in the families of their descendants.
IN THIS COLLECTION OF HER "History Matters" columns from the American Journal, Andrea Vasquez takes readers back to the early days of Puritans and pioneers, when stately forests, wildlife and untamed rivers defined the land around Westbrook. Discover the secret burial place of Colonel Thomas Westbrook, the legacies of Westbrook benefactors Joseph Walker and Samuel Dennis Warren and the all-but-forgotten works of master sculptor Benjamin Paul Akers, whose life was tragically cut short at the height of his career. Vasquez preserves the memories and stories of these sons and daughters of Westbrook, from Cornelia Warren, a forward-thinking philanthropist and women's advocate, to Fabius Maximus Ray, one of Westbrook's first local historians.
