Uxbridge, Massachusetts was incorporated in 1727 from the Western District of Mendon. Located in southeast Worcester County the town evolved from primarily agricultural to a mixed agricultural and industrial economy and is now mostly a "bed-room" community. Uxbridge residents contributed to all the important events that involved the State and the Nation.
The Uxbridge Historical Society serves to preserve the Town's history and make it accessible to the Town's people and visitors.
The Cornet John Farnum house was the site of the first Town Meeting and is now the home of the Uxbridge Historical Society
