Incorporated on October 16, 1673, Dunstable, Massachusetts, was purchased from the Wameset and Naticook Indians for UK 20AA sterling. It was named in honor of Mrs. Edward Tyng, who had emigrated from a community of the same name in England. The Tyngs were early founders of Dunstable, a town that began in hardship. Every house in Dunstable began as a watch house, and every man was a soldier. Dunstable men were among the first to prepare for the American Revolution, and many were sent to fight in the Civil War. Discover the details of this early history in an unprecedented collection of images compiled by local historians Susan Tully and Susan Psaledakis. The images in this collection date as far back as 1743 and span a period of two centuries. Included are pictures of the many historic homes in Dunstable as well as notable people and events in the community.
