The Town of Cohasset has published seven books on Cohasset history: three volumes of the Narrative History of Cohasset, two anthologies (Treasury of Cohasset History and Savor of Salt), one guidebook and concise history (Exploring Historic Cohasset), and one book on Cohasset’s geologic origins and first peoples (Origins of Cohasset: The Land and Its People).
In 1997 the Historical Commission established a Committee on Town History to produce and publish Volume III of the Narrative History (1950-2000). It also oversaw publication of the four books that followed. The Commission now manages the town’s inventory of Cohasset histories.
The books can be purchased at the Cohasset Historical Society, 106 South Main Street, and Buttonwood Books & Toys, 747 Chief Justice Cushing Highway.
