Charlestown, originally known as No. 4, was first settled in 1740 by three families from Lunenburg by the name of Farnsworth.

Forced by powers greater than their own, Native Americans were ruthlessly rounded up and held in concentration camps by the U.S. army where many died waiting to be relocated to the west. Their long difficult journey would be no less merciful in 1839 when the Cherokees were marched to their new homelands in the Indian Nations (Oklahoma), and more than 4,000 perished along the way on what became known as the "Trail of Tears." Other Indian tribes would have similar experiences. Their sorrowful ordeal would not end, however, with the loss of their native firesides and hunting grounds. Indi... View more info
