Westborough remains a place of great historical significance. Officially incorporated as the one-hundredth town in Massachusetts in 1717, extensive farms were established as well as mills constructed on the Assabet River and Jackstraw Brook. In the years leading up to the American Revolution, the city was home to growing support for independence, and forty-six minutemen would fight under Captain Edmund Brigham. In the early portion of the nineteenth century, Westborough became a significant waypoint between Boston and Worcester with the establishment of an official turnpike. Perhaps one of the most significant technological advances owes credit to Westborough native Eli Whitney.
Whitney invented the cotton gin in 1795 and, in 1798, introduced the nation to mass production, which would completely transform the United States economy, industrial systems, and manufacturing processes. By 1824 the town had become a significant economic center for the region, and the arrival of the steam train brought along a new era of prosperity and industrial growth. The next century would mark a period of relatively stable growth. Local factories produced shoes, textiles, bicycles, and straw hats to be shipped across the United States. By 1888 the entire nation enjoyed great prosperity during the Gilded Age, and Westborough had become home to several historically significant sites.
This stunning depiction was produced and published by Oakley Hoopes Bailey, whose birds-eye perspectives are among the most detailed and ornate illustrations of many iconic American cities. This is an authentic piece of cartographical history with a distinguished aesthetic.
