North Attleborough has history!

Our Powder House (1768) that overlooks Mt. Hope St. was used during the Revolutionary War and War of 1812.

The Angle Tree Stone (1790) on High St. was the border between Plymouth Bay County and the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It is a designated National Monument. The spot was marked in 1664.

The Falls Fire Barn Museum on Commonwealth Ave. is one of the area’s last wooden fire stations. It was also one of the last fire stations to have horse-drawn equipment (1893).

The Woodcock Garrison House that George Washington visited was originally a settlers’ fort. It was built in 1669. Today, the house offers a display of what life was like in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is part of the Woodcock Garrison Historical Compound that in addition to the Garrison House includes a burial ground and a wooden schoolhouse. The burial ground includes a variety of historical names. Some of these are Woodcock, Blackinton, Maxcy, Daggett, Clarke, and Smith.

Webster Park has the Revolutionary War Memorial; Baptist Common has a Civil War monument.
