Gilbertville: a National Register Historic District

The village of Gilbertville is such a unique place--an intact "company town" -- that the Massachusetts Historical Commission back in the 1980s, encouraged the Hardwick Historical Commission to do the necessary research to get the village onto the National Register as a Historic  District. 


In 1991 the task was completed and now with over 130 buildings included it is an astounding achievement.

Here's the layout of the text for the district.

Here's the sources, maps, and photos
