Ten on a Toboggan and other Tales $14

edited by Lynn Keffer, Jaqua-Lyne Pindak, Augusta Scattergood

Chatham is the kind of place its residents are proud to call home. The oral histories recounted in Ten on a Toboggan attest to that fact as they bring to life the experiences of a wide range of people in this vibrant community. Beginning with Barbara Berry Erwin Nelson, whose family ties to Chatham date back to the middle of the nineteenth century, and ending with a current Chatham young adult, born and bred in our hometown, this book takes a chronological look into Chatham’s social history. In preserving these memories, the Chatham Historical Society celebrates the history of our town through its stories.

In France during the Great War, five Chatham Borough men lost their lives. In 1919, their sacrifice was honored by the planting of five red oak trees on the grounds of Public School #1, now Chatham Borough Hall. Sadly none remain.
