Cleaning Tip of the Day
Some Interesting Facts About Freetown:
The Town of Freetown is a pastoral community in Bristol County with a small summer colony and a maritime history.† Freetown's early economy was based mostly on agriculture, but the water power of the Assonet River eventually brought grist, saw and fulling mills after 1695 and in the 18th century†Freetown's industries included a tannery.† One of the state's first trout hatcheries was established in Freetown, and in the 1870's railroad dining cars and the luxurious dining rooms of ocean liners were serving Freetown trout.

Freetown's position at the head of a tidewater made it the closest port to the iron-producing towns of Middleborough and Lakeville, encouraging iron foundries and nail works as well as shipyards.† The shipyards built sloops and schooners, some of which probably then worked the coastal or foreign trade routes and brought their cargoes back to the busy wharves of Freetown.† By the 19th century, iron ore came up the Assonet and into Freetown's wharves primarily from New Jersey.† From the wharves the iron went to the factories in Freetown, making machine castings for textile machinery, a significant component of Freetown's industrial product at that time.† The last ship was launched in Freetown in 1848, when the demand for larger ships outgrew the depth of the Assonet River and the extension of the railroads killed off coastal freighting.

Residents of†Freetown turned to small market gardening, dairy production and lumbering and by the end of the century, much of the land that had been farmed was returning to forest as Freetown regained some of its pre-Colonial rural landscape.† Residents are very proud of†Freetown's Colonial history, pointing out that the first company of militia was formed in Freetown in 1683 and that three companies of Minute Men turned out on April 19, 1775 for the Battle of Lexington and then served honorably and well with the Continental Army.

Freetwon is located in Southeastern Massachusetts, bordered by Berkley and Lakeville on the north; Rochester on the east; Acushnet, New Bedford, and Dartmouth on the south; and Fall River on the southwest.† Freetown is about 12 miles northeast of Fall River; 37 miles south of Boston; and 23 miles east of Providence, Rhode Island.† The Cleaning Lady, Inc., is pleased to provide house cleaning, office cleaning, maid and janitorial services to the residents and businesses of Freetown, MA.
