Sherborn, Massachusetts, USA

Sherborn, Middlesex, MA

The whole Charles River valley from South Natick to the falls at Medway kept its Indian name "Boggestow"; it was sought out by the English because of the abundant marsh grass growing on the wide flood plain. By 1674 Boggestow had grown sufficiently to be incorporated as a new town (i.e. the land had never been part of another town) and was arbitrarily named "Sherborne" by the General Court. The original area was of such an awkward shape that the General Court allowed an exchange of 4000 acres with the Natick Indians in 1679; and it was that new land which formed most of the present town. sherbornma.org

Sherborn includes: Dowse's Corner and Whitney.
