This small booklet was published in 1896 by Frederick B. Knapp, the headmaster of the Powder Point School for Boys, as a marketing tool. Powder Point Hall, the dormitories of the school, became a resort during the summer and boarders would use the amenities otherwise used by the students throughout the summer. Knapp enticed guests to his property by highlighting the historic elements of Duxbury. The booklet also features several local advertisements.
