Woburn Massachusetts was incorporated in 1642 and became an early manufacturing center tanning leather and making shoes. The formation of the Middlesex Canal and the Boston and Lowell railroad in the first half of the 1800's increased Woburn's production and shipment of footwear.
By 1865 the city shifted toward the production of leather and Woburn was at the head of the tanning industry in the country. The advent of 1884 found the city hosting 26 large tanneries employing 1500 men.
The tanyards supplemented the city's farming from the earliest settlement times. By 1915 the residents were making ice cream, machine tools, mops and paper boxes. Suburban growth began in the mid 19th century and continues today.
Currently Woburn is home to many technical and commercial industries that employ tens of thousands of people. Woburn is a city rich in history and looking forward to a continued profitable future.
