Wilmington, Massachusetts, USA - 1845 - WILMINGTON. [Pop. 859. Inc. 1730.]
This town was composed of the adjacent corners of several towns ; and, though incorporated more than a century ago, it has yet no central village.
A chief source of Ipswich River rises here ; Wilmington borders on the Shawshine, a branch of the Merrimack, and the Middlesex Canal runs through it; and all contribute to give it a pleasant appearance.
A large quantity of hops is raised here, and the inhabitants are generally farmers, though the soil does not well reward them.
Distance from Concord, 12 miles; from Boston, 14.
