1. John Brown Family Gunsmith Historic Site. Around 1845, John Brown of Poplin built this gun shop at 390 Main Street and with his son Andrew spent many years manufacturing pistols, shot guns, rifles and doing repair work. They manufactured a gun that was very interesting, it was a “side by side” with a rifle barrel and a shotgun barrel. John and his son Andrew became very highly respected gunsmiths in the mid to late 19th century. Andrew Brown became one of the best Gunsmiths in New England and he won medals at the National Rifle Shoot held annually in Waltham, Massachusetts.

released in 1969. The album failed to garner attention, though the band continued to exist as a locally popular live act. The Shaggs disbanded in 1975 after the death of Austin. The band is primarily notable today for their perceived ineptitude at playing conventional rock music; the band was described in one Rolling Stone article as "sounding like lobotomized Trapp Family singers."
