Boylston is a town in Worcester County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 4,355 at the 2010 census.HistoryBoylston was first settled by Europeans around 1706 in the northern part of the present-day town, most notably by the Sawyer family. In 1697, the residents petitioned to form a local town and government, but the British colonial Governor of Massachusetts, William Shirley, denied their request since he wanted to keep the number of towns to a minimum and to restrict popular representation.A meeting house was built in 1743, and the Reverend Ebenezer Morse, ordained in October 1743, was the first minister in charge of the church.The town was made up of a large part of land from Shrewsbury and the remainder from Lancaster and was known as the North Parish of Shrewsbury from 1742 until 1786, when it was incorporated as Boylston.It was named after Ward Nicholas Boylston (1747–1828), a benefactor of the town. The fund he set up in 1797 finally accumulated $1,450, which was used to build the town hall and school building.The locals used to live off agriculture, and erected mills on the Nashua River, until the construction of Wachusett Reservoir terminated their operation.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 19.7sqmi, of which 16.0sqmi is land and 3.6sqmi, or 18.50%, is water.
