Brief History

Worcester was chartered on June 8, 1763.  It has been reported that excellent records were kept on file at the first Town Clerk's office when the Town of Worcester was first settled, but today the exact date of the Town's organization remains a mystery. A fire destroyed the Town's early records. [1] [2] [3]
