Georgetown was originally settled in 1639 as a part of the town of Rowley by
the Reverend Ezekiel Rogers.

The town at the time stretched from the Atlantic coast to the Merrimack River,
south of Newbury and north of Ipswich. Several farmers, finding suitable
meadowlands in the western half of the settlement, began settling along
the Penn Brook by the middle of the seventeenth century,
creating Rowley's West Parish.

Though not directly involved in King Philip's War, the village nonetheless did
become a victim of Indian raids.

The village, which became known as New Rowley,
grew for many years, with small mills and eventually a shoe company
opening up in the town.

By 1838, the town was sufficiently large enough for its own incorporation,
and was renamed Georgetown.

Small industry continued, and today the town is mostly residential in nature,
a distant suburb of Boston's North Shore

Things to do in Georgetown

My wife and I moved into Georgetown Sept of 2016.
Other than the cold weather and lots of snow, we love it here.
I hope to bring some excitement to the area.

It is great to see people smile, laugh and have a good time.
For example winning the Baseball game, having a baby, meeting an old friend,
graduation, promotion, engagement, wedding, birthday.

Yes we enjoy the things we love. Which brings me to my point.
I have been given a gift better than all those things a hundred times.
I have been told to control this love, for not everybody is ready for it.

I understand this, but it is so rewarding to share this love, and I know
there are many others who also have this love.

So on Monday mornings from 6 to 8 am when the weather is OK, look for me
downtown Georgetown, with my sign which reads "Questions, Ask Me and Smile,
Jesus Loves you. I also have 2 signs, one says Free Hugs and the other says
Prayer and Free Books.

My only purpose there is to express my love for Jesus Christ.
I smile and wave as I sing songs. For those who have time to stop,
I offer free hugs, books, prayers, and we can talk about anything you like.

I love it when people bring me coffee and food, however I can not eat the food and do Not drink Coffee, however a hot coco would be nice.

Always looking for others to join me to express their Joy for life.

So, maybe I will see you Monday as we start another wonderful week in Georgetown

We invite you to join us on Wednesday at 6 pm for "Life".

We get together to talk, learn what others are doing to see if we can offer any support,
and a 15 minute reading from the Word.

"One of the prettiest and pleasantest of all New England towns is located about thirty miles from Boston, on the line of the Boston & Maine Railroad, and the name is Georgetown..."

The Boston Traveler, December 18, 1875

The BEGINNING

Georgetown was incorporated in 1838 but its birth was 200 years before when a small group of Yorkshire families led by Rev. Ezekial Rogers set sail in 1638 from Rowley, England for Salem, Massachusetts on the ship "John". Mr. Rogers and his party of about 100 men, women and children, having arrived late in the year, remained in Salem for the winter living in common houses. In the spring of 1639, the group, now numbering over 200 individuals, purchased a tract of land between the villages of Newbury and Ipswich and named their plantation Rowley. This territory included the present day towns of Rowley, Georgetown, Groveland, Byfield and Boxford. Working together The Georgetown Historical Society

The MOVEMENT INTO the INTERIOR

Venturing westward, beyond the bounds of their settlement, the Rowley men discovered meadowlands. It was thought the land might have been cleared by the Indians who would prepare land for planting by burning shrubs and brush. The many artifacts discovered in various locations in Georgetown indicate evidence that this region was a favorite Indian camping ground.

Household utensils, cutting instruments and stone points have been uncovered near brooks, the Parker River and by the shores of the ponds. The colonists found the meadowland was ideal for pasturing cattle and a path soon extended from Rowley to the area around the present Union Cemetery near Penn Brook. As further explorations The Georgetown Historical Society

The GROWTH OF the WEST PARISH TO GEORGETOWN’S INCORPORATION

By 1700, about twenty families settled within the western section of the Rowley territory and Georgetown was in the making. In 1686, Elm Street was the first road opened for public travel in the West Parish. Until that time, East Main Street ended at Elm Street. John Brocklebank built a corduroy road made of logs laid one after the other across his swamp.

Swamp Road is Library Street today. Redshanks Hill, at the junction of Central and East Street, was known by that name back in 1715. During the gold fever of 1849, Redshanks Hill and Shute’s pasture (Nelson and Central Streets) were cleared of trees that were used for timber to build ships carrying the The Georgetown Historical Society

GEORGETOWN INTO the 20TH CENTURY

During the latter part of the nineteenth century, Georgetown continued to prosper as more industries and shops, such as the manufacturing of clothing, cigars, soap, furniture, coffins and caskets, began their businesses here.

Hardy’s Lumber Mill cut lumber and also made wooden boxes and crates. Moses Atwood made patent medicines and was best known for his "Atwood’s Bitters". A New York City firm bought the Bitters formula and, under another name, sold the medicine nationally until the mid-1900’s. Atwood also made the first daguerreotypes in town in 1847.

Newspaper publishing began in 1846. All attempts to publish locally were short-lived until the Georgetown

COUNTRY LIFE

Submitted By: hayseed
WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON THE SEDGE GRASS
IN THE GOLDEN SPRINGTIME WEATHER,
AND WE KNOW THAT SUMMER'S JUST AROUND THE BEND,
WHEN THE BLUEBIRDS AND THE ROBINS BLEND
THEIR SWEET SONG TOGETHER.
WHAT GREATER GIFTS COULD MOTHER NATURE SEND.

WHEN THE FUNNY BABY RABBITS
IN THEIR COZY NEST
ARE LYING AND THE BUDS ARE FULL
TO BURSTING ON THE TREES,
AND ACROSS THE WARM BLUE SKY
BITS OF FLEECY CLOUDS ARE FLYING
AND WE CATCH HINT OF LILACS ON THE BREEZE.

WHEN THE DOGWOOD BLOOMS ARE WHITE
AND THE FISH LEAP IN THE RIVER,
AND THE SUNBEAMS ON THE DANCING RIPPLES PLAY,
THEN WE KNOW BOTH DAY AND NIGHT
WE SHOULD THANK THE GREAT GOOD GIVER.
AND BE CAREFUL ALWAYS WHAT WE DO AND SAY.

WHEN THE AIR IS SWEET AND COOL
AND THE TENDER GRASS IS SPRINGING,
AND THE SILVERY COWBELLS TINKLE IN THE LANE,
WHEN THE MOUNTAIN ROSES NOD
AND THE MOCKINGING BIRD IS SINGING.
THEN WE KNOW THE MIRACLE IS WROUGHT AGAIN.

OUT IN GOD'S GREEN OPEN COUNTRY
FAR AWAY FROM CITY PAVEMENTS
WHERE WE NEVER HEAR IT'S NOISE OR IT'S STRIFE,
THOUGHTLESS ONES MAY CALL IT DULL
AND OTHERS CALL IT LOVELY
BUT I THINK THE NAME THAT SUITS IT BEST IS LIFE.

DOWN TH FURROW GOES THE FARMER
AS HIS PLOW THE SOD IS SHAVING,
AND HE DREAMS OF GOLDEN HARVEST DAYS TO BE,
WHERE THE STUBBLE NOW IS
DRY SHINING GRAIN WILL SOON BE WAVING.
THEN I'D SAY THE COUNTRY LIFE WAS THE PLACE FOR ME.

FROM THE APPLE TREE THE SCREECH OWL
SENDS HIS SHIVERY CRY AT EVEN,
AND THE WHIPPOORWILL IS CHANTING IN THE GLOOM,
THEN THE FIREFLY SHINES HIS CANDLE
AS THE LIGHT OF DAY IS LEAVING.
FROM THE SWAMPS WE HEAR
THE SPRING FROG'S CHEERFUL BOOM.

THEN THE CRICKETS ADD THEIR CHORUS
AS THE DARK OF NIGHT IS FALLING
AND THE SILVERY MOON IS SHINING FULL AND CLEAR,
AND THE EVENING STAR IS BRIGHT
AND THE SLEEPY BIRDS ARE CALLING LITTLE THINGS
BUT HOW THEY MAKE OUR LIVES MORE DEAR.

WHEN THE NIGHT HAS PASSED AWAY
AND ANOTHER DAY IS BREAKING,
WITH IT'S NEWNESS THAT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE,
WHAT COULD BE MORE SWEET
THAN THE WORLD WHEN IT IS WAKING.
THEN IT HAS A VERY GREAT APPEAL TO ME.

WHEN THE SUN SHINE FROM THE ROSEBUDS
DROPS OF SHINING DEW IS WIPING,
AND THE DOWNY BIRDS ARE CHIRPING IN THEIR NEST,
WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON THE SEDGE GRASS
AND THE MEADOW LARK IS PIPING.
GIVE ME COUNTRY LIFE
AND YOU CAN HAVE THE REST.
