Book Overview
Located in southeastern Massachusetts, the college town of Norton has changed considerably since its inception in 1711. What first began as a small agricultural community soon turned into a town of small industries and businesses, and eventually into what it is now--a comfortable bedroom town with a history as interesting as it is long. Norton chronicles the changes that have taken place over the years. Readers can learn about the unique histories of Norton Center, Barrowsville, Chartley, East Norton, Meadowbrook, and Winnecunnet--the charming villages that make up Norton. Winnecunnet Pond has been a center of recreational activities for years, and is said to have been a fishing and hunting spot for King Phillip. Early images of Wheaton College document the growth of what would become the largest landowner in town, as well as a significant influence in its history. One also learns in this volume about early industry, religion, and social life in Norton, but most importantly, the people--immigrants and native-born who made Norton grow and thrive into a community. Norton has become a town with a rich history and a strong sense of both its past and its future.
