Cleaning Tip of the Day
Some Interesting Facts About Middleboro:
Middleboro is a 70-square mile historic industrial town on the Nemasket River and was a major native settlement area used for seasonal fishing, hunting, and berry gathering.† The town of Middleboro is one of only a handful of southeastern Massachusetts communities that retained a sizeable Indian population throughout the Colonial period.† The first European settler was Sir Christopher Gardner, a fugitive from English justice who settled among the Nemasket Indians in 1633.† When he was captured and returned to England, it was several years before a small group of white settlers led by Elizabeth Poole established themselves within†Middleboro.

Agriculture, fishing, hunting and some lumbering were the main occupations of early settlers and as Indian settlements dwindled,†Middleboro's industries grew.† There was a good deal of bog iron found in Middleboro which stimulated the iron and mill industries.† A large self-contained industrial complex was developed by Judge Peter Oliver, including a blast furnace, forge, slitting mill, blacksmith, finishing and hammer shops, grist mill and fuel storage, all of which, along with a country estate, was confiscated when Oliver fled the Revolution as a loyalist.

Although the iron industry dominated the Federal period, Middleboro also made shovels, textiles, straw bonnets and woolens.† Immigrant populations of Swedes, Italians, Canadians and Armenians followed the industrial jobs available.† After the Civil War,†Middleboro became a rail center, attracting industrial development, lumbering, box mills, brick making and the well-known Maxim Motor Company which has been producing fire trucks since 1914.††Middleboro officials have recently approved six parcels as sites for industrial parks and the town plans to embark on an aggressive campaign to bring businesses in to offset the major suburban residential development the town has experienced in recent years.

Visitors to Middleboro now can enjoy the partially restored Oliver Mills Park on the site of Judge Oliver's industrial complex and follow the spring herring run which brings thousands of alewives upstream to spawn.† Residents are particularly proud of the historic museums in†Middleboro which feature recreations of 19th century homes, historic fire engines, Nemasket Indian artifacts, toy trains and memorabilia of the famous midgets General Tom Thumb and his wife, a native of†Middleboro.

Located in southeastern Massachusetts, Middleboro is†bordered by Bridgewater and Halifax on the north; Plympton and Carver on the east; Wareham on the southeast; Rochester on the south; and Lakeville, Taunton, and Raynham on the west.† Middleboro is 35 miles south of Boston; 22 miles north of New Bedford; 30 miles east of Providence, Rhode Island; and 205 miles from New York City.† The Cleaning Lady, Inc., is pleased to provide house cleaning, office cleaning, maid and janitorial services to the residents and businesses of Middleboro, MA.
