Dudley was first settled in 1714, and incorporated as a town in 1732, only eighteen years after it was first settled. Dudley was named after Paul and William Dudley who were land owners in the town.
When Dudley was first settled and incorporated it was known for being a farming and a manufacturing town. Two rivers in the town, the French River and the Quinebaug River, provided an excellent foundation for the growth and support of the town. Not only did the rivers provide arable land for farming, but it also provided as source of food as these rivers had a surplus of fish. The rivers also provided sites for mills to be built for manufacturing. Among the types of mills along to river were textile mills and leather shoe mills. Today there are still mills along the river.
Apart from the industry in the town, Dudley is also known for its history in helping with combat. After the Siege of Boston, in 1776, George Washington and his army camped out in Dudley. While camped here, it was said that Washington and his army seized British weaponry and stockpiled the arms in town. Less than one hundred years later in the Civil War, Dudley residents helped make up the Fifteenth Regiment of Massachusetts Infantry. This regiment served in battles such as the Battle of Ball’s Bluff and Gettysburg. Dudley was also the largest producer of the boots that were worn by the Union Army, and were called “Brogan Boots.” Today, Dudley is primarily a rural college town, home to Nichols College, and has many traces of its previous agriculture and mill industries in town.
The two local rivers the Quinebaug and the French Rivers are the main attractions in the town, and are frequented mostly in summer months. They are used for kayaking and canoeing, fishing and hunting. Among the fish in the rivers are bass, pike and trout. Many locals frequent the river for these features, but also for the calmness and mostly untouched nature of the river, which is much like it was when the area was occupied by natives.

Two Commuter Family Entrusts American Alarm To Protect Their Biggest Asset
Sometimes it’s the case of a two-commuter family leaving the home vacant for most of the day seeking protection for their biggest asset. In the case of one recent American Alarm customer in Dudley, the system was needed for peace-of-mind for the homeowner and her far-flung family. Our customer is an older woman, now living alone, with her adult children long since moved to distant communities. The woman, in consultation with her family, contacted us to install a home security system, including a panic button to summon for help from our 24-hour alarm monitoring staff.
