Settled in 1651, West Bridgewater was originally part of Olde Bridgewater. In 1822, the town split from Olde Bridgewater and was the second portion of the town to do so — both North and East Bridgewater also chose to break from their parent community. Today, West Bridgewater is mostly residential with a population of just under 7000.
West Bridgewater has a relatively quiet history, with both agrarian and industrial enterprises driving much of its economic success. The Town River provided much-needed power for industry to flourish, and the town is home to the first industrial park in the United States, now the Town Park. In addition, West Bridgewater claims the oldest standing parsonage in the U.S., the Keith House, which was built in 1662.
