The picturesque starting place for the Boston
Marathon, the town of Hopkinton, Massachusetts,
is home to a rich variety of industries and businesses.
Residents here have strong ties to the community, as
evidenced by the town’s wealth of festivals, public parks,
This exciting new photographic history takes us to the
time when electric streetcars ran in Hopkinton and the
coming of the railroad shaped the growth of the town.
We catch glimpses of residents hard at work in the area’s
old boot and shoe shops, granite quarries, sawmills, and
cranberry bogs. From views of early town government,
schools, and church buildings to intimate scenes of
home and everyday life, the over 150 rare and previously
unpublished images contained in Hopkinton create a
dramatic mosaic of the town’s past.
