Milton chronicles the tremendous changes that have taken place in this town in the last century. Originally a part of Dorchester, Milton was incorporated as an independent town in 1662. For more than two hundred years, the area was primarily agrarian, with industrial activity along the Neponset River. Following the Civil War, Milton's population rapidly increased due to the convenience of the Dorchester and Milton branch of the Old Colony Railroad, which provided railway access to Boston. By the early 20th century, rampant development was occurring on all sides of the town. This generously illustrated volume, with vintage images placed alongside contemporary photographs, shows the changes that have taken place in Milton through the years.
