Middleborough was first settled by Europeans in 1661 as Nemasket, later changed to Middlebury, and officially incorporated as Middleborough in 1669. The names Middlebury and Middleborough were actually derived from the city of Middelburg, Zeeland, the westernmost province of the Netherlands. The name Nemasket came from a Native American settlement along the small river that now bears the same name. In the spring, the Nemasket River alewife and blueback herring run upstream to the Assawompset Ponds complex to spawn. Middleborough was once a large producer of shoes and is still home to the Alden Shoe Company, one of the last remaining shoe manufacturers in America. The local Maxim Motors manufactured fire engines from 1914 to 1989. In 2007, Middleborough became the proposed location for a controversial future resort casino, sponsored by the Wampanoag Tribe of Mashpee, Massachusetts. In 2012, residents approved an ordinance outlawing the use of profanity in public, making it punishable by a $20 fine. Many legal experts said the law violates the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. In October 2012, Massachusetts attorney general Martha Coakley backed off the law, saying it was inconsistent with the general Constitution and the general general law. The town has a total area of 72.2 square miles (2.9 km) according to the U.S. Census Bureau. It is the second largest municipality in Massachusetts in terms of terms of area.

History

The town was first settled by Europeans in 1661 as Nemasket, later changed to Middlebury, and officially incorporated as Middleborough in 1669. The name Nemasket came from a Native American settlement along the small river that now bears the same name. There are no contemporary records that indicate the name Middlebury was taken from a place in England. The names Middlebury and Middleborough were actually derived from the city of Middelburg, Zeeland, the westernmost province of the Netherlands. In the summer of 2007, Middleborough became the proposed location for a controversial future resort casino, sponsored by the Wampanoag Tribe of Mashpee, Massachusetts. Teams from Middleborough have twice reached the Little League World Series (LLWS) the only Little League in the state to reach twice in the International Era (1958+). Middleborough reached the 1994 edition by defeating Milburn-Short Hills, New Jersey, to take the East Region title. In South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, the team lost two games (to Virginia and California) and won one game (over Minnesota). They were one of only two Massachusetts Little League teams to win the East title (the other being from Andover in 1988) before it was split into the New England Region and Mid-Atlantic Region in 2001. In October 2012, Massachusetts attorney general Martha Coakley blocked enforcement of the law, saying it was inconsistent with the Constitution, and the town ultimately backed off the profanity ban. The local Maxim Motors manufactured fire engines from 1914 to 1989. Middleborough has since become the location of the corporate headquarters of Ocean Spray Cranberries.

Geography

Middleborough is the second largest municipality in Massachusetts in terms of area, smaller only than Plymouth. The town is approximately 15 miles (24 km) west of Plymouth, 30 miles (48 km) east of Providence, Rhode Island and 40 miles (64 km) south of Boston.

The hottest temperature recorded in Middleboro was 99 °F (37.2 °C) on July 10, 1911 and July 23, 2011. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Middleboro has a humid subtropical climate, abbreviated Cfa"" on climate maps. Middleborough is also the site of several cranberry bogs, especially in the southeastern part of town along the Carver town line. Ocean Spray's headquarters are just over the town line in Lakeville. The town has four wildlife management areas, as well as the Beaver Dam and Great Cedar and Little Cedar Swamps. It has a total area of 72.2 square miles (186.9 km²), of which 69.1 sq mi (178.9km²) is land and 3.1sq mi (8.0km²), or 4.27% is water.

The Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority provides public bus services along three routes in Middleboro. At one time, five rail lines radiated out from the town. Today, three rail lines extend from Middleborough, toward Boston, Taunon and Cape Cod.

A small grassy, unpaved field in South Middleborough is also used for recreational aircraft, but not for transportation. It is located just 1.5 miles (2.4 km) northwest of the town line. It has been suggested that such expansions may warrant the construction of a new station.
