A look back at Ol' Fall River

The website www.preservemasshistory.com features an interesting little piece about Fall River! It's from an article in the New England Gazetteer from 1837!

"This town took the name of Troy, in 1803. It was formerly a part of Freetown.
In 1834, the name was changed to that of the river within its borders, at the
union of which and Taunton river the town is very pleasantly situated. "
