Description

The mention of Carver usually conjures up images of cranberries and brilliant red bogs. In the 1800s, immigrants from Finland and the Cape Verde Islands came to Carver as cranberry harvesters and later became prominent residents and owners of their own bogs. By 1940, more cranberries came from Carver than from any other town. While much of Carver's infrastructure and industry was driven by the berries, the discovery of iron ore and construction of several foundries also had great influence. Through historical images gathered from the public library and local residents, Carver chronicles the growth of the town; various industries; landmarks such as Savery Avenue, Union Church, and the Edaville Railroad; and Old Home Day, a one-hundred-year-old tradition.
