History

In 1769, the meeting house was constructed, in the area which is now the Common in Reading. The name of the town is pronounced 'red-ing' rather than 'reed-ing'.

Many of the Massachusetts Bay Colony's original settlers arrived from England in the 1630s through the ports of Lynn, Massachusetts and Salem, Massachusetts In 1639 some citizens of Lynn petitioned the government of the colony for a 'place for an inland plantation'. In 1693, the town meeting voted to fund public education in Reading, with grants of four pounds for three months school in the town, two pounds for the west end of the town, and one pound for those north of the Ipswich River. John Brooks, later to become Governor of Massachusetts, was captain of the 'Fourth Company of Minute' and subsequently served at the Battle of White Plains and at Valley Forge. Minutemen were prominently involved in the engagements pursuing the retreating British Army after the battles of Lexington and Concord.
