A Yankee tradition grew up there side by side with the cultural heritage of many immigrant groups, and this early diversity distinguished the community from some of its neighbors. Dracuts first landowner was John Webb, whose property was sold in the seventeenth century to the towns first resident, Edward Coburn. Dracut men served valiantly in the Revolutionary War, and many residents figured prominently in the fields of politics and business. This marvelous new photographic history of Dracut chronicles the contributions of many and puts into context the role of the town in the history of the United States.
