About one hundred and seven years ago, several of the energetic and enterprising settlers from Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and other States, emigrated from their native homes and established themselves within the bounds of the present Town of Perry. The wilds rapidly gave way to civilization; the forests fell as the dwellings arose; soon the unobstructed streams were arrested, their currents made subservient to the will and comfort of man, and the conquering power of industry and science, with the profuse bounties of Nature, combined to render this one of the most beautiful and prosperous abodes of man.

With what delight would these same pioneers gaze upon the Perry of today I Their retrospective view would begin at the time when they felled the first tree, turned the first furrow, raised the first log cabin, and then the modern frame house. They would remember the first few houses which formed the nucleus of our present village; they would contemplate with deep satisfaction the fruit of their labor, toil and early sacrifices, which now have resolved themselves into a common heritage to us of the Perry of today.

On this One Hundredth Anniversary of the incorporation of our Town, I take pleasure in submitting facts concerning its early and general history. It has been my aim to seek out the facts from every available source, recognizing as I do the historical importance of the subject.
