In 1661, Europeans first settled the area of Middleborough, then known as Nemasket. The name was later changed to Middlebury, and in 1669 the town was incorporated as Middleborough. The original name may have meant “place of fish” in local dialects, owing to the large number of herring which migrate up the Nemasket river. And while many towns in this area were named for old English settlements, Middleborough ‘s namesake is the city of Middleburg in the westernmost province of the Netherlands, which was a cultural and intellectual mecca.
Several industries have flourished in Middleborough. Cranberry bogs provided a lucrative source of income for local families, and the town is sometimes called the “cranberry capital of the world.” In addition, Middleborough was once home to several large shoe manufacturers and the Alden Shoe Company still operates out of the town — one of the last remaining shoemakers in the United States.
History abounds in Middleborough — it’s worth making at stop at the 1870s Victorian-style town hall or 1930s Beaux Art style library, along with checking out the Nemasket river spawn; both alewife and blueback herring are in abundance. Looking for more wildlife? Check out Beaver Dam, the Great Cedar and Little Cedar swamps.
More than a few famous Americans hail from Middleborough. One is Isaac Backus, notable Baptist preacher and Founding Father. Or Deborah Sampson, who enlisted as a Continental solider by dressing as a man; Sampson later removed a musket ball from her thigh with only a penknife and sewing needle. She was later promoted and served as a waiter to General John Paterson.
