The original settlement of Boston was the site of a stagecoach stop in 1837. However, to take advantage of the new railroad in 1861, the town was moved to its current location - 10 miles east of Thomasville. Boston offers a wealth of history, and is possibly the smallest town in the country to have a Carnegie Library, built in 1913.
In addition to an active, award-winning Main Street, Boston offers two active community clubs, which organize annual events including the Boston Mini-Marathon and Festival the last Saturday in October. Boston is also home to the Dillon Candy Company with 90 years of experience in making gourmet brittles and specialty nut confections using original family recipes and old-fashioned methods.
