Atlborough is 10 miles west of Tonton City (16 km), 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Providence City, Rhode Island, 18 miles (29 km) northwest of Fall River City, and 39 miles (63 km) south of Boston City.
In 1634, the English pioneer first entered the place where Atlborough was now situated. The pioneers encountered the lack of facilities for poor soil and water transport, and they were able to endure a poor life. They declared that they were not fit for human survival and decided not to return. However, in 1694, the town was separated from Rehobos as a town of Atlborough and became a corporation. The town area was larger than it is now, but the town of Cumberland, Rhode Island State was separated in 1747 and the town of North Atlborough was separated in 1887. In 1914, the town was converted into a juridical person again as a city, and the last three letters, '-ugh,' were lost (North Atlborough left the spelling). Like many towns in Massachusetts, the city was named after a town in Norfolk, England.
While the civil war against the Indians had been going on, Nathaniel Woodcock, the son of the Attleboro people, was murdered, and his head lay on a pillar in the front yard of his father's house. His father's family is now designated a historic site. There is a legend that George Washington passed through Atlborough and stayed at the Hatch Mall near the house of Woodcock Garrison, where he exchanged his shoes for Israel Hatch, who was a military man and the new owner of the Garrison's house.
In Atlborough was L.G. Balfour, a jeweled company, and in 1913 was known for its processing of jewels. Balfour later left the city and the site of the factory was converted into Riverfront Park. Since Atlborough was called the "World's Capital of the Precious Stones," the company continues its operation. One of them was the Giyo Brothers Company, which was established in 1904. The companies that still operate today include General Findings, M.S. Company, James A. Murphy Co., Galan Chain, Reach & Ghana and Masters of Design.
Atlborough was 41 degrees 56 minutes north latitude and 71 degrees 18 minutes west longitude, 41.933 degrees north latitude and 71.300 degrees west longitude, 41.933 degrees west;(41.93, -71.32), and according to the Census Bureau of the United States, the entire area of the city is 27.8 square miles (72.0 km2), of which land is 26.8 square miles (69.4 km2), the water area is 1.0 square miles (2.6 km2), and the water area is 3.59%. In the north of Atlborough is North Atlborough, in the east is Mansfield and Norton, in the south is Lesbos, SeaConk, in Potaccet City, Rhode Island, and in the west is Cumberland, Rhode Island. Within the city, there is a district called Briggs Corner, Dodgeville, East Junction, Hebron Building, and South Atlborough.
In addition to the Bangei River, the Temmile River, which is a combination of several streams, runs through the center of Atlborough. Manchester Pond Reservoir is located beside Interstate Expressway Route 95, with several other small ponds. Two areas are the protected area: Anthony Lawrence and Coleman, and on the north side of the city is the Bangai River Preservation Area. The highest point in the city is Oak Hill, 249 feet (76 meters) above sea level, north of Oakhill Avenue in the southern part of the city.

Atlborough's Faculty of Education includes five elementary schools, three junior high schools and one high school. Atlborough High School also has a vocational training course. The football team plays a game against North Atlborough High School every year on Thanksgiving Day. Bishop Fihan High School was a Catholic coeducational high school, which opened in 1961 and was named after Bishop Daniel Francis Fihan, the second bishop of Fall River. There is a satellite branch of the Bristol Community College in the city, which used to be the city's former high school building, but moved to the site of the former Texas Instruments. In 2009, Bridgewater State University opened a branch in Atlborough and shared the facility with Bristol Community College.
There are four museums in the city. Four museums are the Atlborough Museum, the Atlborough Regional Industrial Museum, the Women's Museum, and the Museum at the Mill. Other interesting locations include Kepron Park Zoo, L. G. Balfour Riverwalk (where the former L. G. Balfour Jewel Processing Station used to be, and adjacent to the central city business district), Awardie of la Salet Schlein (where the Christmas lights up are available), Torboro Youth Theater/Torboro Music Theater, Atlboro Community Theater, and Dodgeville Mill.
In December 2011, Atlborough secured $5.4 million in the state and federal budget to help revitalize the historic center area. The city's "Center Area Redevelopment and Revitalization Project" aims to transform unused industrial and commercial assets into mixed applications of commerce, recreation and housing. The project also involves improvements in the road-improving transportation system to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Bureau's Commuter Train and Greater Attleboro Tonton Regional Transportation Bureau buses.
The city's project, which has been selected as the Brownfield (Contaminated Soil) and Support Team Initiative, is designed to encourage cooperation between states, regions and the federal government to solve complex problems in order to pave the way for economic development opportunities in cities across the state. The organization of the Brownfield support team is contributing to the Massachusetts Department of Environment, Mass Development, Housing and Community Development, and Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
Jim McGabin, a member of the United States House of Representatives, said in 2011, "The budget for this change will provide Atlborough a chance to reshape its center and make the strong town stronger. Once the new transportation plan is completed, Atlborough as a model of other small cities and the active reuse of the contaminated areas will strengthen the economic development," Clinton said, stressing the importance of the project.
Atlborough is located beside Interstate Expressway Route 95, Interstate Route 295, National Route 1, Massachusetts State Route 1, Route 118, Route 123, and Route 152, and these three states intersect at the center of the city. Interstate Highway 95 enters Massachusetts from Potaccet, Rhode Island. At the north end of Inter-State Expressway Route 295, the town border of North Atlborough is close to the intersection with Inter-State Expressway Route 95. The planned interstate highway Route No. 895 crosses Atlborough and crosses the current interstate expressway No. 95 and No. 295. When you come from Rhode Island into Interstate Highway 295, you will find an exit in front of the half interchange on Interstate Expressway 95.
In the city there are two stations of the Mass. Massachusetts Bay Transportation Bureau's Commuter Railway, located near the border between the central city of Atlborough and the South Atlborough district and Rhode Island. Atlborough and Tonton can use the bus service of the Greater Atlborough Tone Regional Transportation Bureau. In addition to the routes connecting the two cities, some routes connect the surrounding areas.
The Atlborough Religious Map reflects the historic ethnic structure. There are three churches: St. John, St. Theresa of Little Flower, St. Vincent de Paul and the Catholic Church, each representing England, Ireland, former France (now Hispanic), and Portugal.
The All Saints Episcopal Church (built in 1890) in North Main Street belongs to the traditional Church of England, but the church is now very diverse. In 2007, the liberal policies of the Episcopal Church were split up and the All Saints Anglican Church was established in Hebronville Village. The church is subordinate to the Anglican parish in Uganda.
The Centenary United Methodist Church in North Main Street started as a congregation in a building in Railroad Avenue on November 26, 1865. In 1896, the first church building in the current place started under the name of the Davis Methodist Episcopal Church. This building was destroyed by fire in 1883. The church, which was rebuilt in 1884, was named the Centenary Methodist Episcopal Church and celebrated the 100th anniversary of the American Methodist. In 1998, the Centenary and the Hebron Methodist were integrated into one church.
The Second Congregational Church (established in 1748), which is close to Town Common, is a typical New England town and was the founding church of East Atlborough at that time. It is the First Congregational Church's daughter church in Old Town, North Atlborough. It was originally a meeting place in the present common, and was built in 1825 with a stately white sheathing. It was abolished in the early 1950s and a new Buddhist hall and a classroom were built. The main building's red brick building and clock tower were built next to a white church in 1904. In the early 1960s, the altar and the interior of the entrance were dramatically renovated to combine the Victorian style with the modern open sense. Behind this church is the Old Kirk Yard Cemetery, where the early families of the town are buried. The clock in the clock tower was originally owned by the city, but is now owned by the church. Jack & Jill has been running the church for over 60 years. One of the elementary schools in the city is named after Peter Thatcher, the first clergyman of the association.
Protestant churches in the city include Baptist 3, Advent Christian, the Flute of the Spirit Mission, Assemblies of God, and Besaney Village Fellowship. The Malay Unitarian Universialist Church is also on North Main Street. Likewise, the Evangelical Kobanant Church in North Main Street celebrated its 100th anniversary in recent years. It used to be the Swedish Church, but now it includes many ethnic tools. Jehovah's witness Kingdom Hall is in Commonwealth Avenue.
There are also many super-religious churches such as Christian and Missionary Alliances, Goodnews Bible Chapel, New Covenant Christian Fellowship, and Candleberry Ministery. There are also several ethnic churches, such as the St. James's Anglican Church (Kenya), that started with church transplantation.
