History of Artemas Ward Park "is a very thoroughly researched lecture given by Dr. John Paul Jones, professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in Boston, in March 2011. History of the City of Boston, Volume 2 (L.W.), compiled by Samuel Adams Drake, published in the years 1879 - 1880. The New York Times and the Pulitzer Prize-winning book "The American Revolution" list Marlborough among New England's most important cities. In 1826, the American Society for the Advancement of Colored People (A.A.P.) published the first edition of a book on the history of art in the United States.
In 1994 and 1995, the American Society for the Advancement of Colored People (A.A.P.) conducted a comprehensive study of art history in the United States. The Company put the entire five-volume 2008 report online, and the report provides a detailed analysis of the factors driving this development. It also contains a detailed analysis of Marlborough's history as a city and its place in New England history.
The book is available from the Marlborough Public Library, hardback reprints are available from the Historical Society. You can read it here as a PDF and search online or download it as a pdf from Google Books. The lower floor of the library also houses a large collection of photographs, most of which show houses in Marlborough.
Also in the southeast corner there are several marshes and ponds, including a large pond at the top of the hill and a small pond on the south side. This swamp is located south of Campbells Falls State Park, named after the Whiting River.
The city is located on Massachusetts Route 183, which passes through Marlborough en route to its terminus on Route 57 in Sandisfield.

This area is filled with a mixture of urban and rural areas, from the city center to the south and east of the state capital. It is cloudy, but not as thick as the cloud - cloudy, filled - in areas of Boston, Cambridge, Worcester, Somerville and Worcester County. The area has an average population of 1.5 million people per square mile, or about 1,000 people per square mile of land in Boston and Cambridge. That's the same population as all of Massachusetts, with the exception of Boston, the largest city.
It includes interviews with longtime Marlborough residents and a brief history of the area by the state Department of Health. The nine-page report, which was produced in 1980, is the result of two years of research and analysis by the State Department's Office of Planning and Development.
Marlborough was one of seven Indian cities before the Rev. John Eliot of Roxbury converted to Christianity. As the population and business travel in the colony increased, Marlborough became a popular resting place. The abandoned track bed, which runs between Marlborough and the Hudson, was built as part of the Great Trail, a rail network between Boston and New York City. Today, the westbound route is State Route 20, which was then called the Great Trail, later known as the Kingas Highway.
