Medway is a town in Norfolk Country. First Settled in 1657 as the western portion of Medfield, it was separated from the rest of Medfield by the Charles River. Incorporated in 1713 it was renamed Medway.
Initially an agricultural community, the river became a natural power source for mills to develop. Cotton and paper mills were soon joined by straw and boot factories. Medway grew up around these industries. These Medway industries eventually closed, their buildings converted to other uses, leaving the small, sleepy town which is now a bedroom community to larger towns and out of town industries.
The 2000 census for Medway was 12,448 with a projected 2010 population of 14,545. The senior portion of the 2000 census population was 9.1%, aged 65 or older. 17.2% of all Medway households were made up of individuals with 7.1% of these having a Medway senior 65 or older living alone.
