The city of Woburn, located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts is about 10 miles north, north-west of downtown Boston. Woburn was settled in 1640 near Horn Pond which is a primary source of the Mystic River. Woburn was officially incorporated in 1642. At that time the area included present day towns of Woburn, Winchester, Burlington, and parts of Stoneham and Wilmington. In 1730 Wilmington separated from Woburn. In 1799 Burlington separated from Woburn; in 1850 Winchester did so, too. Woburn got its name from Woburn, Bedfordshire. Woburn played host to the first religious ordination in the Americas on Nov. 22, 1642. Rev. Thomas Carter was sworn in by many of the most prominent men of New England including John Cotton, minister of the First Church of Boston, Richard Mather minister of the First Church of Dorchester, and Capt. Edward Johnson co-founder of the church and town of Woburn. Johnson is regarded as “the father of Woburn.” He served as the first town clerk, represented the town in the Massachusetts General Court, made the first map of Massachusetts, and wrote the first history of the colony. The City of Woburn is comprised primarily of working class families. As of the 2010, the population of Woburn was 38,120.Woburn is no stranger to precedent setting legal battles.
