Fences of Stone, A History of Southborough, Massachusetts 1600-1990
by Richard E. Noble
“We understand that none of the settlers of Stony Brook in the 1700s would recognize the Southborough of the twenty-first century. It would also be something of a challenge for those who lived in Southborough 100 years ago to deal with the changes of the last century. Even since 1990, the date Fences of Stone was first published, readers would have some difficulty recognizing the town just short of two decades later.”
The Southborough Historical Society is pleased to make this history of Southborough available in a new paperback edition. This well illustrated volume tells the story of our town from 1600–1990. This story ends where a volume yet to be written will begin. With a grant from Community Preservation Funds, Donna L. McDaniel is interviewing some long-time town residents in preparation for a book on the village of Fayville to be published by the Southborough Historical Society in 2010–2011. This upcoming title is one that we hope will report how we have met the challenges of our time—from de-congesting highways to finding time in over-busy lives to serve our community and thus preserve our connection with the town we call home and, yes, regain some of the serenity of the Stony Brook of the 1700s.
