Description:

Postcard shows a view of the Common looking east up Church Street, which becomes Salem Street at the point where the houses are visible (the intersection with Main Street). In the center on Main Street is the Emmanuel Parish Episcopal Church, and on the right is the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial, erected in 1902 to commemorate Wakefield's Civil War casualties. The 1647 date on the card presumably refers to the year of the first land grants to settlers.
