Erving, Massachusetts, USA - 1845 - ERVING. [Pop. 309. Inc. 1838.]
This little town, until lately, was known as Erving's Grant, and was probably named in honor of John Erving, a Boston merchant, to whom the tract was sold by the government.
The town lies on Miller's River and the Connecticut, where they unite.
Some woollen cloth, and boots and shoes are made here, but the main resource is agriculture.
Distance from Greenfield, 10 miles ; from Boston, 85.
