Clinton Ma. Real Estate Information
The town of Clinton is an industrialized mill town that used the Nashua River as a source for power. It lies in the valley of that river and is the site of the Clinton Dam which was used to create a source of drinking water for Boston. The creation of the Wachusett Reservoir system was formed by damming the Nashua River; this caused a substantial relocation of several towns when completed in 1911. Today the Clinton Dam is a popular local tourist attraction and the watershed offers numerous places to enjoy nature. The town’s location near large sources of water afforded it some prominence in the late 1800’s and well into the 20th century. Various manufacturing companies used the water as part of their plant operations during that period. Clinton still has a manufacturing presence using those existing mills today.
Clinton is 13 miles north of Worcester and 35 miles west of Boston. Routes 495, 2 and 190 offer easy access to and from the area.
Among my favorite places to visit is the Old Timer Restaurant. The restaurant has a great old feel to it. On Friday evenings a piano is played. On each end of the dining room is a balcony where performers used to entertain guests. I find it a very welcoming place.
Clinton offers some nice homes for a good bargain. The downtown area, like most New England mill towns, has an assortment of old buildings. The town’s newer developments offer a unique perspective on an older town. What I like about Clinton is the business presence it has for a town of its size.
