Winchester, Massachusetts, USA

Winchester, Middlesex, MA

Until the middle of the 19th century, parts of Arlington, Medford, Cambridge, and Woburn comprised what is now Winchester. The movement toward incorporation of what, by this time, was called South Woburn was likely precipitated by the rise of the Whig Party in Massachusetts. Upon the signature of then Governor Briggs, the town of Winchester was officially incorporated on April 30, 1850. kids.kiddle.co
