People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Attleboro, Massachusetts, USA? 

Attleboro, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA
In 1634, English settlers first arrived in the territory that is now Attleboro. It was incorporated from Rehoboth in 1694 as the town of Attleborough. It included the towns of Cumberland, Rhode Island, until 1747 and North Attleborough, Massachusetts, until 1887. The town was reincorporated in 1914 as the City of Attleboro, with the "-ugh" removed from the name, although North Attleborough kept it. Like many towns in Massachusetts, it was named for a British town.wikipedia
