The North East Riverplayed an important role in the beginning of the town. Mills were built along then rivers, farms grew, and local fishermen found the area to be plentiful. Though the town was settled prior to 1700, it didn't become incorporated until 1850 (Wikipedia says 1849 - not sure who to believe on this one).
