Wellington-Harrington History

The construction of the railroad in the 1850s helped promote new industries in the area, including woodworking, the manufacture of musical instruments, and soap-making. This growth helped attract several waves of immigrants, including northern and eastern Europeans and a large Portuguese population. Although the Wellington-Harrington neighborhood did not fully develop until after the Civil War, it was home to two prominent abolitionists — Lunsford Lane, a former slave and John J. Fatal, a supporter of the Underground Railroad. The neighborhood draws its hyphenated name from the names of two former schools located in the area — the Wellington Elementary School and the Charles G. Harrington Elementary School.
