Dracut Town

Dracut Town Hall is located at 62 Arlington Street, Dracut, MA 01826; phone: 978-452-1227.

Beginnings [1]

The history of Dracut before its incorporation is meager. Some of the properties changed owners, but many were held in possession by the Colburns, Varnums and Richardsons. Their families had increased and they began to desire a town organization and a settled ministry. Joining with 4 non-resident owners, they presented a petition to the General Court to be laid out for a township.

The earliest recorded deed of land in what is now known as Dracut was made in 1664. The town was incorporated February 26, 1702. Jonathan Danforth performed services as the first surveyor.
