Athol, Massachusetts was called Pequoiag when colonists settled there in 1735. It is situated on the Millers River in northern Worcester County. When it was incorporated in 1762, John Murray, a prominent landowner, named it Athol after his homeland in Scotland. This postcard shows a view of the Kennebunk Curve of the Millers River with the tracks of the Fitchburg Division of the Boston & Maine Railroad following along the bank. The curve is incorrectly labeled as "Kennebec" on the card.
