Historic Map - Uxbridge, MA - 1880

View of Uxbridge, Worcester County, M.A., 1880 / drawn & published by H. B. Bigelow.

This bird’s-eye view print of Uxbridge, Massachusetts was drawn and published by H. B. Bigelow, Beck & Pauli, Lith. in 1880. Uxbridge was incorporated in 1727 in the Blackstone River Valley. Its early history revolved around the famous Taft political family.

A bridge across the river at that location led to Providence, making Uxbridge a natural stop-over. Uxbridge received further attention following the construction of the Blackstone Canal in the early 1800's. The canal conveniently put Uxbridge midway between Worcester and Providence along the two-day trip.

Uxbridge was an early-on adaptor to manufacturing interests, having a number of textile and grist mills. When the Providence & Worcester Railroad was built through town, in the 1840's, the fine woolen and cotton products produced at the mills of Uxbridge received much notice and their production increased greatly.
