Uxbridge is home to the Nation's
first woman voter and was once a thriving commerce
center along the Blackstone Canal. Its history is
rich as a home to one of John Eliot's Praying
Villages in the mid 1600s and in later centuries, a
center of manufacturing that produced the woolen
uniforms for Civil War soldiers.
Its 18th century
Quaker Meeting House still stands and represents the
strong Quaker influence in early Uxbridge.
