Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, in Worcester county, is 5 miles NE of Worcester, Massachusetts and 33 miles W of Boston, Massachusetts. The town is considered part of the Worcester metropolitan area. Shrewsbury has a population of 31,640. The first permanent settler of this town was Gersham Wheelock, who arrived in 1720. The earlier settlers of this town largely came from Marlborough and Sudbury. The town was settled in by 1722 and incorporated in 1727. It saw rapid progress after streetcar routes were developed in the 19th century. Although the town developed into a popular resort destination, its economy was supported by agriculture as well.

The Town of Shrewsbury, named for Shrewsbury, England, is a suburban community with an uneven and hilly terrain cut by a number of minor streams providing several small water power sites. Grants of land were made in what would eventually be the town beginning in 1664, with the 3,200-acre (13 km2) grant called Haynes Farm as the largest. Settlers came primarily from Sudbury and Marlborough, and the first permanent settler was Gersham Wheelock in 1720. As a town, Shrewsbury was first settled in 1722 and officially incorporated in 1727. Townspeople created an agricultural economy with apple orchards, and by 1750, there were two stores and four taverns as well as several small industries in operation. The rapid fall of prices for agricultural goods, the shortage of hard currency, and the general economic depression following the Revolutionary War produced disastrous conditions for colonists. Shays’ Rebellion in 1786 sought to close the courts to prevent debt collections and the foreclosure of mortgages. Shrewsbury became a staging area for the rebellion and the encampment of the more than 400 insurgents, before the march on the Worcester Court House.
