The area was originally known as Massaco, possibly in reference to the people that inhabited the area. In 1643, as compensation for a fire that destroyed property, a deed was given to the owner of the destroyed property for the area known as Massaco. Settlers to the area began farming and ten years later began building permanent homes. In 1670, a petition was presented to the court to incorporate the area and the petition was granted. A court order declared the area be called by its current name. The town grew slowly and remained a major farming community. Today, the city is a family friendly community. Read More
