History

On November 11, 1723, Jonathan Edwards was installed as the pastor of Bolton.[2]

In 1781, George Washington stayed at a home in Bolton[citation needed]. Later that year, the French army passed through the town. On Rose's Farm, Rochambeau stayed the night with his troops. Archaeological evidence proves that they were in Rose's field; and possibly also across the street (because of the houses there this was

not proven). Archaeologists believe that the officers of the troops stayed there, since they usually stayed away from the troops because they considered themselves higher in status. The artifacts that would have been found if the grounds had been correctly excavated would have been very useful for the history of Bolton.[citation needed]
