The Lore

Below are links to the stories we've gathered about Boxborough's street names.

This is an ongoing, collective project, drawing from historical texts and oral history. We welcome all stories you have to share about particular places around Boxborough; send us an email through the bottom of this page!


Please note the information we have documented is “lore,” which may include inferences, assumptions, and other creative liberties. While we have attempted to verify the lore and substantiate it with other resources, we hope you will enjoy the stories as what they are, stories. If you have any questions about our methodology or have feedback, please contact us!
