Northborough Ma. Real Estate Information
Northborough, also known as Northboro, is a very nice community located 11 miles from Worcester and 35 miles for Boston. Once part of Marlborough it is now home to more than 14,000 residents. The town is picturesque and has some nice history.
First Parish church located on Church St was built in 1746, well before the American Revolution. Like most churches of its period it was also used as a meeting place for government affairs. Because New England churches were used to conduct state business, and serve as places of worship the local ministers were paid by the government. Of specific mention is the churches bell which was cast in Paul Revere’s foundry in 1809, and still sits on the church grounds.
Several working farms occupy the area, and the town is host to the growing industrial park located on Hayes Memorial Drive. Companies such as McKesson, Fidelity, HP, Verizon, EMC and Kens Foods make their homes in the area. The town’s locale has a significant advantage, since all the major highways pass through the area.
The Howard Street Park is an ideal place for small children to play while older youth might enjoy the skateboard park at Ellsworth McAfee Park. Assasbet Park is another nice place for young children. It features an enclosed play area with picnic tables, and a splash pad to keep the little ones cool on a hot day.
Another fun day is taking advantage of the Mount Pisgah trail system; this area includes land from the towns of Boylston, Berlin, Bolton, and Northborough. A hike along the various trails features some beautiful vistas looking at the surrounding landscape.
Northborough and Southborough share a regional school district. Between the two towns there are many elementary, and middle school options. The district supports one high school named the Algonquin Regional High School which is located in Northborough. It is also part of the Assabet Valley Regional Technical School District
