Cleaning Tip of the Day
Some Interesting Facts About Swansea:
Swansea is a suburban/rural community founded on the premise of religious tolerance for all.† Unfortunately,†Swansea also turned out to be the starting place of King Philip's war in 1675 and the site of the first bloodshed of the war.† Before that war there were several historic Indian settlement sites and trails in†Swansea.† Colonial settlement began in 1663 and†Swansea was named after a minister's home village in Wales.† In 1664, King Philip had conveyed the land in†Swansea to William Brenton of Newport and by the start of the Indian war, there were 70 people staying in the garrison fortified house in town and several occupied houses on the Neck.† During the war, Indian attacks destroyed every house in†Swansea, including the garrison.

After the war, forges, ironworks and fishing on†Swansea's rivers made up a substantial part of the community's economy.† The small villages that made up the community of Swansea†were the sites of stores, cotton mills, grist and yarn mills and fishing boats.† When the bigger industrial cities such as Fall River, Taunton and Providence absorbed the town's industries, Swansea's large agricultural capacity remained important.† In the 1890's, the street trolley connected Swansea to Fall River and Providence and suburban and summer homes were developed.† A picnic grove called Shady Isles was established by the streetcar company and brought city people out to the country on day trips.

Now a suburban community with much of its agricultural land still open, Swansea also retains Colonial houses.†

Swansea†is located in southeastern Massachusetts, bordered by Barrington and Warren, Rhode Island, on the west and southwest; the mouth of the Taunton River on the south; Somerset on the east; and Dighton, Rehoboth, and Seekonk on the north.† Swansea is about 4 miles west of Fall River; 47 miles south of Boston; 12 miles southeast of Providence, Rhode Island; and about 190 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 Swansea, MA.
