By Linda Rennie, Marlborough Historical Society

Marlborough – Over the years the month of May has been the time when the community of Marlborough has taken steps toward growth and progress.

May 30, 1660 – Old Style, Marlborough Incorporated. The later date in the New Style was June 10, 1660. But the direction was set in May.

May 28, 1776 – The town of Marlborough unanimously instructs their representative that if the Continental Congress declares independence, the town will support the measure with their lives and fortunes.

May 4, 1853 – Marlborough established a Fire Department by act of Legislature. It had been commenced earlier in 1849, by the purchasing of three fire engines

May 24, 1867- was the date of the incorporation of the Marlborough Aqueduct Company, for the purpose of supplying the inhabitants of this town with pure water, from Howe-Williams-Gates pond.

So will May 2014 be added to this historical list, with growth and progress for Marlborough?
