Somerset history:

Known first as Pottersville because of the potteries in operation in the area, it was incorporated as Somerset in 1790. The town runs along the Taunton River and Mount Hope Bay. Lee's River also runs along the western portion of the town. Long ago, the main industry in Somerset was farming, but now two large power plants, Montaup Electric and New England Power, are the main industries, with retail and service businesses in large numbers.
