Excerpt from An Historical Address, Delivered at the Centennial Celebration of the Incorporation of the Town of Wilbraham, June 15, 1863

IV. The fourth period extends from the division of the town into two parishes, June 20, 1782, to the pres ent day, June 15, 1863. It includes the history of the gradual growth of the town, - its improvements in agri culture and means of education, the formation of new religious societies, and of troubles in the old ones, the erection of shops, mills, manufactories, and of the foun dation and success of this noble institution, to whose spacious halls we have been this day welcomed by the generous hospitality of its principal, my friend and class mate, the Rev. Dr. Raymond.

Such is the outline of my story. The settlement of the town, the establishment of religious institutions, the organization of the town and the administration of its affairs, under the act of incorporation, till the formation of two parishes at the close of the Revolutionary War, and its subsequent growth and improvement.
