About Taunton, MA

Known as the Silver City, Taunton is a city with a population of 56,000 located in Bristol County. Taunton is located forty miles south of Boston and less than twenty miles east of Providence, Rhode Island. The Taunton River weaves and winds its way through and about the entire city. This river helped turn Taunton, which itself means “Town of the River”, into a city rich with textile mills as the river served as a vital shipping route for inland textile products produced within and around the city. The early silversmithing industry is why Taunton came to be known as “The Silver City.” Taunton in fact produced all the Olympic medals that were handed out at the 1996 summer games held in California. The city’s metals industry also produced the anchor for the USS Constitution.
