Cleaning Tip of the Day
Some Interesting Facts About North Attleboro:
North Attleboro is an industrial town in Bristol County on the Rhode Island border.† In pre-Colonial times,†North Attleboro†was the site of the Bay Path, a major Indian trail to Narragansett Bay, the Seekonk River and Boston.† John Woocock and family established a small settlement in North Attleboro in 1669, which subsisted on agriculture, fishing and hunting but also clearly liked a little conviviality because by 1670, Woocock had received a license to open an ordinary, or tavern.† The settlement of North Attleboro was attacked during the King Philip war, with two killed and one home burned, but the garrison house which Woocock had built survived the attack.† Recovery was swift after the war and†North Attleboro†grew very quickly; by 1776 there were 2200 people living there.

In about 1780 a French settler set up a forge for working brass and the industrial era arrived in North Attleboro.† Englishmen brought with them British machinery from Birmingham in 1794 and designed American improvements in button making which they patented.† During the 18th and early 19th centuries, small grist and sawmills were built along the Tenmile River, and subsequently established nail factories were eventually eclipsed by cotton spinning mills.† The development of cotton spinning was spurred by the embargo on imports resulting from the War of 1812.† Textiles and jewelry manufacturing were the staple industries of†North Attleboro†by 1832 but buttons were king.† By 1834 it was said that North Attleboro produced more buttons than anywhere in the United States.

Through the 19th century there was tremendous growth and innovation in the jewelry industry and the number of firms in†North Attleboro†increased sharply.† By 1855 there were 24 shops making almost $1 million in jewelry in both Attleboros. The Civil War spurred their growth with profitable U.S. Army orders for badges and medals.

North Attleboro retains an outstanding collection of mid- to late-19th century houses including several Italianate villas.†

Located in southeastern Massachusetts, North Attleboro is bordered by Plainville on the north; Mansfield on the east; Attleboro on the south; and Cumberland, Rhode Island, on the west.† North Attleboro is 32 miles southwest of Boston; 12 miles north of Providence, Rhode Island; and 186 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 North Attleboro, MA.
