This article from the Northhampton, Massachusetts, "Bicentennial Edition of the Daily Hampshire Gazette" (6-11-1976) summarizes the history of the town of Ware, calling it "The Town that Can't Be Licked." It tells of the town industries, and how it banded together to buy a textile plant when the company that employed 75 per cent of the town's workforce moved south. Ware was settled between 1719 and 1730, and has suffered periodic economic declines typical of New England mill towns.
