Overview
The history of Middleborough is a history of its numerous villages. Like other geographically large towns, Middleborough developed a number of small communities that provided their earliest residents with needed services, such as mills, schools, churches, and cemeteries. These villages ranged in size from Middleborough Four Corners, which by the 1850s had emerged as the municipal, commercial, industrial, and social center of the town, to smaller village centers like Titicut, Eddyville, Rock, and South Middleborough. Using historical images from the extensive collections of the Middleborough Historical Association, as well as from town residents, Middleborough explores the town's evolution from its earliest foundation through its mid-19th-century transition from one of southeastern Massachusetts's largest agricultural communities to one of its most industrially productive.
