Marlborough tells the history of a town that is centrally located at the crossroads of Routes 495, 290, and 20. A busy commercial and political center, Marlborough today is a thriving community that still retains the tree-covered ridges and idyllic ponds from its early days as a Native American and Colonial settlement. With stunning images, the book illustrates the stories of firefighters capturing one of the abolitionists' symbols of freedom to obtain their own firehouse bell, the success of the shoe industry that brought three railroad stations and a trolley service to town, and the famous residents known for medical and industrial breakthroughs.
