History of Marlborough, MA
Marlborough was first settled in year 1657 and was officially incorporated
in the year of 1660.
In the 1650's,
several families left the nearby town of Sudbury, just 18 miles
west of Boston, to start a new town. The village was named Marlborough
after the market town in Wiltshire, England and, in 1660, received
permission from the Massachusetts General Court to incorporate their
town. The early settlers survived the rigors of frontier life, including
clashes with the local Native Americans, to become a peaceful farming
business, and travel grew in the colonies, Marlborough became a
favored rest stop on the Boston Post Road. Many travelers stopped
at its inns and taverns, including George Washington, who visited
the Thayer Tavern soon after his inauguration in 1789.
In 1836, Samuel
Boyd, known as the "father of the city," and his brother
Joseph, opened the first shoe manufacturing business - an act that
would change the community forever. By 1890, with a population of
14,000, Marlborough had become a major shoe manufacturing center,
producing boots for Union soldiers as well as footwear for the civilian
population. Marlborough became so well known for its shoes, that
its official seal was decorated with a factory, a shoe box, and
a pair of boots when it was incorporated as a city in 1890.
The Civil War
resulted in the creation of one of the region's most unusual monuments.
Legend has it that a company from Marlborough, assigned to Harpers
Ferry, appropriated the bell from the firehouse where John Brown
last battled for the emancipation of the slaves. The company left
the bell in the hands of one Mrs. Elizabeth Snyder for 30 years,
returning in 1892 to bring it back to Marlborough. The bell now
hangs in a tower at the corner of routes 85 and Main Street.
