Roam Around Marlborough, MA In The New 2018 Toyota RAV4


Marlborough, Massachusetts offers a rich heritage of New England history dating back to 1660, when it was founded by English settlers. While the community of Marlborough, MA has accomplished numerous achievements in the town's 350-year history, Marlborough, MA is noted for its shoe manufacturing business. Samuel Boyd, who is known as the "Father of Marlborough," opened a shoe manufacturing plant in the community in 1836. Fifty-four years later, Marlborough became a major shoe manufacturing center in New England, producing boots for Union soldiers, as well as every day footwear for local and neighboring New England residents. Shoe manufacturing was such an important part of the Marlborough, MA community that a pair of boots and a shoe box were incorporated into the town's seal, when Marlborough was officially incorporated in 1890.

Although many shoe manufacturers fled the Marlborough area in favor of other New England communities in the years that followed, several shoe manufacturers stayed in Marlborough, MA.  Saul Katz, one of the shoe manufacturers who stayed,  developed a comfortable heavy leather moccasin shoe ideal for walking in 1971 and named the shoe the Rockport. The shoes became the first "walking" shoes and are still popular today for walking and hiking. Many believe the woodlands and walking trails surrounding the Marlborough, MA area inspired Katz to create a shoe expressly for walkers, hikers and nature enthusiasts.
