Marlborough declared the town in 1660. Later, the population increased, and it became a city.
In 1638, Christopher Allen was recorded as a Marlborough judiciary and married Mary Weatherby. In 1656, John Howe Jr., a fur trade company, built a house at the intersection of the two Indian roads, Nashua Trail and Connecticut Pass. Howe could speak the Algonquian Indian language. But the local Indians called themselves penacock. The pioneers were welcomed because they protected the Indians from other war tribes. In the 1650s, several families left Sadbury's town 18 miles (29 km) west of Boston and left the new town. This town was named after the commercial town of Marbra in Wiltshire, England. In 1657, the 14 people led by Edmund Rice, John Radok, and John Howe first settled in Japan. In 1656, Rice and his colleagues made a petition to the Massachusetts Colonial Assembly to establish the town of Marlborough, and it was officially incorporated in 1660. In 1657, rice was selected as the mayor of Marlborough. Historian Sumner Chilton Powell wrote "Puritan no mura: In the Formation of a Town in New England, he wrote, "Rice not only became the largest landowner in Sadbury, but also served for five years as a representative of the new town in the Massachusetts Assembly and served as mayor and judge of a small town for at least 11 years during the last 15 years."
William Brimstead became the first clergyman in the Puritan Church, and Jonathan Johnson became the first blacksmith.
Marlborough was one of the seven "Praying Indian Towns" as Clergyman John Elliot of Roxbury converted the Indians to Christians. In 1674, a deed was made to divide the land between the settlers and the Indians. This was the only document that recorded the name of the Indians. The document was signed by
- Old Nakkenit
- Robin (Robin Hill of Marlborough was named after this robin)
- Benjamin Uttanamit
- Great James
- a widow of Mary and Peter Nasconi and a child of David Moses
- The widow of James Nwell, Asoki, "For my children."
- as Sarah Connolly, the executor of my late husband Umonogg,
- Elizabeth, the only daughter and the only successor of the deceased Solomon (Solomon's Solomon Pond was named from Solomon, and Solomon Pond was named from it)
- James Spence, for his wife
The reclaimed land was almost destroyed by the Indians in 1676 during the Philippe War.
In 1711, Marlborough's territory included Northborough, Southborough, Westboro, and Hudson. As the population, business and transportation increased among the colonies, Marlborough became a favorite stop on the Boston Post Road. Many travelers stopped at the inn and the bar. George Washington visited the Williams bar shortly after he became president in 1789.
In 1836, Samuel Boyd, who was called "the father of the city," and his brother, Joseph, started their first shoe manufacturing. This changed the character of the town forever. By 1890, the population was 14,000, making a major center of shoe manufacturing, making boots for the Northern Army of the Civil War, and making shoes for citizens. Marlborough's shoes became well known, so when the city was incorporated as a city in 1890, the city emblem also included a shoe factory, a shoe box and a pair of boots.
The Civil War has made the region's most unusual monument. There is a legend that a company from Marlborough was assigned to Harpers Ferry, and John Brown brought the bell back from the fire station where he had fought the last to release slaves. The company left the bell in the hands of Mrs. Elizabeth Snyder for 30 years and brought it back to Marlborough in 1892. The bell is now hung on a tower at the corner of Massachusetts Route 85 and Main Street.
At the same time, Marlborough is considered to be the first city in Japan to receive certification of streetcars. It was a few months before Baltimore. It was designed mainly for passengers, and connected the concord north of the southern Milford. Marlborough has attracted skilled engineers from Quebec, Ireland, Italy and Greece as an industrialized and growing town.
The shoe industry continued in Marlborough for a long time after many factories had escaped from other towns in New England. Rice & Hatches, Inc., operated several factories from 1875 to 1929 in Marlborough. The famous fly boots were made here until the 1970s. Founded in 1971 in Marlborough, Rockport Corporation maintains its outlet store in the city. In 1990, when Marlborough celebrated its 100th anniversary of the city system, he built a park to recognize the manufacture of shoes and decorated the sculpture by sculptor David Carpenter Theoporas.
With the construction of Interstate 495, 290 and Massachusetts Turnpike, Marlborough was able to start the fifth century in the cutting-edge new industry. In other words, it is a high-tech and specialized electronic industry. Today, there are many companies in the city, including: TJX, Raytheon, Hewlett Packard, Advanced Micro Devices, Sun Microsystems, Netista, Nettssa, Boston Scientific, Sanobion (former Cepa Core), Three-Com, AT&T, Apple, Egenera, Evergreen Solar, Butcher Corp. (Butcher's Bowling Array Wax), Fidelity Investments, Quest Diags., Lucent Technologies, Lucent Technology, and other industrial companies, e.g., e.g., Technology, Technology, Technology, Technology, Technology, Technology, and many other companies, such as Technology companies, in the industry., Technology., Technology., Technology, The Technology. Because of its easy access to major highways and its policy of pro-business and development, Marlborough's population has doubled in the last 25 years, surpassing 38,000 in the latest census.
