The Town of Charlton Massachusetts was founded in 1755 and is located in the south-central portion of Worcester County and is less than 50 miles away from Boston.
History of the town includes James Capen Adams also known as "Grizzly Adams" who was one of the last mountain men. Adams spent eight years in the Rocky Mountains. He became a friend and slayer of grizzly bears as well as having several hand to fang encounters with the bears. In 1860 Adams died with his boots on and was buried in the Old Burying Ground in Charlton.
History of the town also includes that of Dr. William Thomas Green Morton whose experiments with ether first made anesthesia possible during surgical operations. Visit the cemeteries for a closer look at both the head stones of Grizzly Adams and Dr. Morton as well as a peek into your own family roots!
