Holbrook was incorporated in 1872, oddly enough on February 29 during a leap year, ensuring the town remains forever young. Development was typical of any suburb surrounding Greater Boston. Holbrook began as a leading producer of footwear, but evolved into a residential community whose citizens went elsewhere to find prominent employment, particularly to Boston.
Many residents served and died during the Civil War. It was during the time of the Civil War that the town became a leading boot producer, providing footwear for American soldiers.
