For almost 200 years, Shrewsbury was a small town with virtually no growth in population or industry.
Starting around World War I, that rapidly changed, with many small farms and open spaces being developed into house lots and businesses.
The many changes in town, from being a small village to becoming the modern town it is today, can be seen and read about in Shrewsbury Through Time.
