Brockton, Massachusetts Houses for Sale

Located in the southeastern part of the state of Massachusetts and a city in Plymouth County, Brockton is situated in the south of Boston. The land where Brockton is at present was inhabited by Native Americans and was then sold to Myles Standish and John Alden who made the area part of Plymouth County. The community was originally developed to become a farming industry and used to be a part of the town of Bridgewater and was called North Bridgewater became it came to be known as Brockton. The town ventured in the shoe manufacturing industry and was on the development of the McKay Sewing Machine and of the demand that was created because of the American Civil War, Brockton became a primary boot-producing center. But such importance dwindles in the 1950s. It was Brockton who first adapted the electric street lighting and has pioneered in the operation of the electric-powered streetcars and has also introduced the widely copied municipal system of the inland sewage disposal.
