The town of Hopkinton was incorporated in 1715 when settlers first inhabited the area as an agricultural community. This focus and community feel continued until the 1840s when boot and shoe industries were introduced to the area. Hopkinton quickly became a hub of business and travel to the area escalated in order to be part of this boom in the economy. During the 1850s, however, Hopkinton began to lose its allure with the industry, and the boot and shoe manufacturers were lured away by other towns in the area. Sadly, Hopkinton’s luck didn’t change and over the course of a few years, the town had been swept by fires which damage and destroyed the remaining boot and shoe businesses in the town.

During this devastating time for Hopkinton, many of the residents and other businesses relocated. However, Hopkinton reconstructed and this time the town built more houses and stores with materials that could withstand fires, should one ever break out again. The brick town hall of Hopkinton constructed during this time still stands today. Hopkinton has two historic districts which are home to 120 properties which remind Hopkinton of its past.
