Industry

The mills on the Neponset River have been referred to as the precursor to the American Industrial Revolution. Manufacturing, which grew to satisfy the needs of the population, was given a boost by the trade embargo enacted in 1807. Without goods from England and France in the market, domestic industries grew to satisfy demand.
