The Story of Standish and its People, 1876-1976 by Allan McCready. Reprint 1976. 108 pages plus illustrations. “The purpose of this story is to preserve the names of the men and to mention their part in the building of our fair city of Standish. I grew up with many of those who were responsible for the city’s growth, lived and worked with them during more than half the century covered herein. Being curious and keeping a diary [has] helped me to supply many of the dates. [H]aving worked with some of those who were early settlers has been a big help in supplying names and occupations of many who otherwise may have been forgotten.” – Allan Mc Cready [author]
