This is so in point of size alone. On the town's one thousand and seventy-five acres some eighteen thousand people live -- thus making the little town by the sea one of the more important of the State. Winthrop, is a beautiful town. Its location between the Atlantic Ocean on the East and Boston Harbor on the West is alone enough to establish the fact.
Even more, Winthrop is a town of gentle hills which, although now built over with about 4, houses, gives almost every window a wide prospect over miles of ocean, marsh and a city just far enough away to be remote and yet near enough to be conveniently reached within a half-hour or so.
Probably one of the greatest factors concerned in the production of Winthrop's charms are the many elms and maples lining her 36 miles of streets and shading most of her homes and all her public buildings. There are wealthier towns in the Commonwealth than Winthrop but few more financially fortunate.
By many years of self-sacrificing service by public-spirited citizens who have served the town largely without pay, the town is practically without debt; nearly all the streets are paved and have sidewalks while the municipal establishments, schools, library, town hall, fire houses and all the rest are paid for in full.
Winthrop is known as a town of homes. This is true because there is practically no industry in the town at all. The town is emptied of mornings by perhaps ten thousand men and women who go into Boston to their various occupations.
At evening, they return home. This is a common condition of many of the suburbs around Boston and certain uncomplimentary critics have described these suburbs of Boston as being mere bedrooms for the City.
However true this may be, Winthrop does maintain its own spirit and integrity. As it is a pleasure to live in Winthrop, so is it a distinction.
This is the result of the town's many years of 3 history, a history free of the scandal and difficulties which have affected at one time or another, most of Boston's suburbs. This is remarkable, because Winthrop has a long, long history.
Actually, this town observes its centennial this year. That is so because it became legally a separate town inwhen it was parted from the present City of Revere. Previously, Revere and Winthrop had been a part of the present City of Chelsea -- just as Chelsea and Revere and Winthrop had been a part of the original settlement of Boston.
That takes the history back to but this is merely the white occupation of this area. The first whites who visited Boston Bay of demonstrable certainty were hardy fishermen from Britain, France and Portugal.The History of Winthrop Massachusetts by William H.
