A town incorporated in 1767, originally spelled "Reading" but changed shortly after to better reflect its pronunciation.
Geologically, most of the town is underlain by Ordovician unnamed leucocratic orthogneiss or by a central belt of Cambro-Ordovician Rowe Schist and Ordovician Ratlum Mountain Schist that was originally Iapetos Ocean bottom sediments. Cameron's Line, a major Taconian orogenic suture, crosses the NW corner of town and separates the above rocks from Laurentian Proterozoic gneisses and Cambrian Stockbridge Marble and associated calc-silicate rocks.
