Pittsfield Then and Now

Pittsfield Then and Now is a book compiled by ex-Mayor Jane Woodruff with over 175 people who contributed their writing, their art and their photos to help provide a snapshot of Pittsfield as it is today in the context of its history It looks at the town and its people today 225 years after the first family made their way to settle on the shores of the Sebasticook River and 200 years since the town's incorporation. It looks not only at what was- its people, its traditions, and its landmarks-but what they are today

Currently, parts of the chapters of the book are displayed in the waiting room of the Depot. In the office section of the depot, a historical timeline based on Sanger Cook's book- "Pittsfield on the Sebasticook" - was made by Ron Rollins 6th grade students.
