Tyngsborough, Massachusetts

Middlesex county. This is a pleasant town on both sides of Merrimack river, 8 miles N.W. by W. from Lowell, and 29 N.W. from Boston. Incorporated, 1789. Population, 1837, 870.

The river here is wide, placid, and majestic, and adds much to the beauty of the place. There is not much water power in the town, and the soil is light and sandy. Large quantities of granite are quarried here, hammered and fitted for various uses, and taken down the river. Here are also manufactures of brushes, barrels, boots, and shoes.
