The history starts with a recounting of Puritan times in the Massachusetts Bay colony and begins with detail about the year 1670 and King Philip's War, with Dunstable being one of the places that John Eliot preached to the Indians. There is much on the early development of these New Hampshire villages and the changes that took place in the original Congregational church, which was founded on Puritan principles. The advent of Unitarianism, Universalism, the founding of Baptist, Methodist, and Episcopal churches are all related, with many curious local facts and lore.

The author was a professor of elocution in the Andover Theological Seminary and in the Harvard Divinity School.
