1699

On January 2nd Cornelius Fisher, one of the areas first settlers, died. He was "the first head of a family (who) died in the town of a natural death for (the last) thirty years". His home was near River Road and Myrtle Street or as it was then called, the Old Fording Place. This area was referred to as River End because the Mill River ended when it flowed into the Charles River.
