Groton, MA Town Information

Following the Indian Trials in the Bay Area, John Tinker was instrumental in the formation of Groton. The early dwellers settled near the mouth of Nod Brook on the Nashua and began operating businesses with the Nashaway Indians. Groton was settled and officially incorporated in 1655. Indians attacked Groton during King Philip's War in 1676, when the entire town was reduced to ashes except for four garrison houses. Two years later, the survivors returned to restore the city.
