Still looking for that last-minute holiday gift? – a gift that includes the opportunity to support Reading’s only local history museum – Parker Tavern. Images of America: Reading, written by Everett and Ginny Blodgett and published by Arcadia Publishing, is available by contacting the authors at

Learn a little more about Reading’s past, its many varied industries, farms, and activities. See what has changed and what you recognize that hasn’t changed. The price is $21.99, and profits from the book’s sale go to the Reading Antiquarian Society owners of Parker Tavern. 

In coordination with the Reading Historical Commission, there is also a “bundle” available for $45.00, including Images of America: Reading, and At Wood End (published for Reading’s 350th celebration in 1994). All proceeds from the sale of At Wood End will go to the Reading Celebration Trust’s Preservation section.
