Hopkinton has always been a rural town, but it grew up on pioneer industry. The mills on Wood River and other waterways form only part of this collection of Hopkinton images. You will also see town residents putting on plays, going to Camp Yawgoog by wagon, and fishing on Yawgoog Pond. Here is Hopkinton from the dawn of photography to the middle of the twentieth century: stone walls and farmsteads, horse-drawn buggies and early autos, and the fondly remembered Wood River Branch Railroad.
