Welcome to Marblehead Magazine On The Web. Since you're here you know
why we've decided to dedicate our resources to internet publishing.
But here are our official reasons:
First, we have achieved a far, far wider
readership on the Internet than we ever achieved as a traditional
publication. And at our height in 1993, we were selling out every
issue of 5,000 copies. As of the date above we have attracted innumerable
visitors to our pages from all over the United States and from over
120 foreign countries since inception on January
Second, we can publish far more articles,
far more color photos, and do it far more often. Just browse around
our Table Of Contents and
you will see exactly what we mean. Currently Marblehead Magazine access
to over 300 pages of stories, history, information, and over 3,000
color pictures of Marblehead, all indexed for easy viewing.
And, third, We can offer a much better deal to advertisers
who support us. Today, advertisers pay only $25 per 1000 page
views by the most demographically appealing potential customers.
All in all, the internet means a lot to Marblehead Magazine. We believe
that as more and more people are using the internet for their news,
entertainment and for many other reasons, and we have already become
an important part of Marblehead's online community. And it gets better
So, please open a Free Subscription to
Marblehead Magazine, and browse throughout our pages. You will find
some of the articles we published on paper, and you will find many
new features that are surprising and innovative. Our parent site,
legendinc.com, and has been named
one of the Top 100 sites on the internet many times and offers many
internet features of its own.
Starting in January 2000 we launched our Online
Store, which features many unique items for sale, and all of
the "back issues" of Marblehead Magazine, while they last.
We are pleased to offer you this new, universally available digital
format and we hope you can forgive us for ending the traditional publishing
format, but the future of publishing for us is right here on the world
Tell your friends about, and come back often. And remember to open
a Free Subscription, because it makes
a difference for us in funding the site through the minimal advertising
that we do accept. It's free, and it helps. Thanks.

P.S. Here is a quote from the preface of the St. Johnsbury, Vermont
Town Plan, that was the inspiration for our original and for our continuing
"There is need for intimate human relationships, for the
security of settled home and associations, for spiritual unity, and
transmission of the basic cultural inheritance. These the small community
at its best can supply. Whoever keeps the small community at its
whoever clarifies, refines, and strengthens the vision of the small
community, may have more to do with the final emergence of a great
society that those who dominate big business and big government."
