Woburn History

Tanneries, tires, and so much more!

Woburn's Original Inhabitants

Woburn's original inhabitants were the Algonquin people of the Pawtucket Confederation; specifically, the Naumkeag and Abenaki. Prior to European settlement, these people flourished in Woburn and the surrounding area. The Archives has but a small collection of remnants of this history, most of which is on display in the library's Historical Artifacts Room.

Woburn Public Library resides on the lands and waterways originally belonging to the Naumkeag, Pawtucket, and Massachusett peoples. Woburn Public Library acknowledges this history and the people who have stewarded this land though the generations, past and present.
