Ye Olde Towne George
When the residents of Colonial Massachusetts decided to venture past their homes on the banks of the Merrimac River, the tiny settlement at Georgetown quickly grew into a full-fledged community. We can thank Rev. Ezekial Rogers from Rowley, England, for creating the foundation of this town. Though it wasn’t until 1838 that the town was finally incorporated, his work and the work of many residents for hundreds of years, helped make Georgetown the fantastic place it is today.
Since the mid-1800s, the population of Georgetown has been steadily rising. One thing that is certainly not on the up and up is the city's poverty rate, which stands at a diminutive 4%. With a median income well over 70,000, we can be sure that Georgetown is well-cared for by the people who live here.
The Day the Lights Went Out
In 1912, the lights went out. Well, the gas lights, anyway, because this was the year that the town adopted electricity. Soon after, gas pipelines and a modern sewer system were also installed in the town, much to the delight of pretty much everyone. Except for the professional gas lamp lighters, who were now out of a job.
Having a Good Time in Georgetown
One place in Georgetown that you won’t want to miss is the Brocklebank Museum, which is housed in a building from the 1600s. This museum is rich with local history. In it, you can find all kinds of miscellaneous artifacts and antique trinkets, including fantastic metal chests and even an old slave collar (retained by some fervent abolitionists as a testimony to their desire to get rid of the horrible things once and for all).
You can always find something fun to do around these parts, especially if you're willing to make the short trek down to Beantown. Boston has at least 25 free things to do. We're certain there are many more than that, but all of these 25 are ridiculously fun. (Feeding ducks in the park does not make the list.) You can take in a performance at Harvard University Square, visit Bunker Hill, check out the abundant bookstores, and even take a tour of beer maker Sam Adams' Jamaica Plains brewery.
When you finally get to Georgetown, see if you can't track down the former home of famous American author, John Updike. He apparently drew his inspiration (and his income) from his Georgetown environs. We hope you will too.
