Hopedale: Commune to Company Town

    This summary of  Edward Spann's book on Hopedale was done by
    Norene Roberts. In addition to being a summary of the book, it's an
    excellent summary of Hopedale history.

    Error - page 4, 1890s. The total acreage of the town park and Parklands is
    nowhere near 1,000 acres, or 1/3 of the total area of the town. This
    mistake has been repeated elsewhere.

    Error - page 5, 1913. That should read Industrial Workers of the World, not
    International Workers of the World.
