The area - originally part of Rehoboth - was incorporated in 1694 as the Town of Attleborough. Attleborough at that time included what is now North Attleborough, MA and Cumberland, RI. Cumberland was separated out in 1747 and North Attleborough in 1887.
In 1914, Attleborough was re-incorporated as the City of Attleboro. At this time Attleboro was known for its jewelry manufacturing earning it the nickname "The Jewelry Capital of the World." Although no longer a jewelry 'capital', some jewelry related manufacturing firms continue to operate there today.
Attleboro contains the localities of Briggs Corner, Dodgeville, East Junction, Hebronville, and South Attleboro. Of these localities, only South Attleboro is an acceptable postal destination although it does use the 02703 Attleboro zip code.
