The town’s administration is comprised of a Town Administrator and an elected Board of Selectmen. First a part of Marlborough, Southborough was settled in 1660 and then formally incorporated as its own town in 1727. It was formerly a farming and then a light industrial town. Although it is now primarily considered a bedroom community, it does have some businesses, especially along Route 9.

Southborough—A 1934 Chevy sits in a repair bay at All Car Care, waiting for Rick Meisenheimer and his crew to restore it after a fire gutted the engine and damaged the whole front end.

“I’ve been repairing cars since I was 14. My first job was with Irvine Rambler in Hopkinton,” Meisenheimer recalled. He’s owned his own shop for 40 years, the last 30 in the same Southborough location, the first Studebaker showroom in New England.
