THIS town was incorporated in 1783. The tract comprising the township is elevated and hilly. There is no stream of much importance in the town. The township lies between Concord and Nashua rivers, and at nearly equal distance from both. The population of this town in 1837 was 433, being smaller than that of any other in Middlesex county. About one thousand dollars’ worth of straw bonnets and palm leaf hats were manufactured in this place. Limestone is found in the town, and hops have been cultivated to some extent. Distance, 9 miles from Concord and 25 from Boston.
