Tyngsboro is a small residential town in northern Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Tyngsboro is 37 miles from Boston along the Route 3 corridor and located on the New Hampshire state line. To date the town population is 12,318 but has experienced a tremendous burst in residential construction in the last decade as part of Greater Boston while keeping it’s rural charm.
Tyngsboro was settled in 1661, as part of the massive Dunstable Township. The town of Dunstable, incorporated in 1673, was named after the hometown of pioneer Edward Tyng. However, a relative of his, and the source of the town of Tyngsborough’s name, was Colonel Jonathan Tyng, whose home, the Tyng Mansion House, was one of the oldest north of Boston. He settled near the Merrimack in what is now Tyngsborough in 1675. The house stood until the 1970s, when it was destroyed by arson. Early on Tyngsborough residents fought a series of small and bloody skirmishes with local Native American tribes. Evidence of this can be found in several old colonial homes in town that still have emergency passages that were used during these attacks. In 1789, Tyngsborough’s parish split from the rest of Dunstable, making Tyngsborough a recognized district. On February 23, 1809, Tyngsborough became a town.
Tyngsboro is probably best known today for it’s green painted single-arched iron bridge over the Merrimack constructed in 1931.
