The Northampton MUD is proud to present to the residents of Northampton a factual and pictorial history of our neighborhood. Longtime resident, Mr. Jack Hickey has conducted extensive research and interviews with many people to provide the basis for this account, which starts before the “beginning”, with the original Spaniards looking for an elusive “water route to the Orient” and continues through the present. Photographs and graphics for the story were compiled by author Jack Hickey, and contributing editor, Lisa June. Website preparation by Lisa June. We hope you enjoy it!
