Norton Massachusetts celebrated 300 years on June 12, 2011
The town of Norton, Massachusetts turned 300 years old in 2011. A brief history of our town can be found here. For a pictorial tour of Norton, check out the Norton Historical Society's page. The Tricentennial committee worked hard to bring you a party all year long. Our first big event was "First Night" on December 31, 2010, and ended on December 31, 2011 with a closing ceremony and the sealing of our time capsule. Check out our photo gallery for pictures of most of our events, view images from our historical calendar and share in our celebration!
