THIS town was incorporated in 1730. This township was composed of the corners of the adjoining towns. “The soil of this town is thin and light, but produces most of the fruits of the climate, and especially hops have been raised here in great abundance and perfection.” The face of thc township is comparatively level. A main branch of Ipswich river takes its rise in this town. There is a Congregational church in the center, but no considerable village in any part of the town, the inhabitants being principally farmers, who live scattered over all parts of the town. Population, 795. Distance, 10 miles from Lowell, and 14 from Boston. The Middlesex canal and Lowell railroad pass through the western section of this town.
