In 1649, the land of this town was sold by the Massasoit Indians to Miles Standish. It was settled soon afterward, and then named "Bridgewater." It was renamed in 1874 in honor of Isaac Brock. During the Civil War, this city was America's largest producer of shoes, and one of the largest producers of leather goods.
