I am a Real Estate Broker affiliate of Byron Realty Corp. My hobbies are jazz piano theory, non-fiction reading, and helping people to find or sell their dream home in Massachusetts. Massachusetts is such a beautiful state and the change of seasons is always inspiring: You get to work in fall, you become more introspective in the cold, snowy winter, you feel the re-birth and promise of spring and neighbors are seen coming back outside, you "recharge your batteries" in summer.
I have a pilot's license and I have taught at the college level. I'm always inspired to learn and grow and contribute in some way to my community and be a productive citizen of our great country.
Clinton MA Posted On: 10/3/2011 4:36:07 AM
Clinton MA is a terrific New England town bordered by Lancaster to the north, Bolton to the northeast, Berlin to the east, Boylston to the south, and Sterling to the west. It was named after the DeWitt Clinton Hotel in New York, a favorite place of the town's founders, Erastus Brigham Bigelow and his brother Horatio.The population in 2010 was 13,606.
If you enjoy the historical appeal of a former mill town you may like Clinton. Clinton became a small industrialized mill town, using the Nashua River as a source for water power. Railroads came to the town to serve this industry, including the Boston, Clinton, Fitchburg and New Bedford Railroad (Fitchburg Branch of the Old Colony Railroad), the Central Massachusetts Railroad, and the Worcester, Nashua and Rochester Railroad (the last two later merged into the Boston and Maine Railroad). By 1890, Clinton was noted for its manufacturing of carpets and woven wire.
The average income here is between 40 and 50,000.
Clinton MA offers a simple way of life and is the first town west of 495 to offer a more affordable standard of living. It has a country feel in some places, good access to major highways 495 and 190, grocery stores, CVS, Walgreens, Dunkin Donuts, Gas stations and even a Russian Icon museum. The Wachusette Dam is an interesting feat of mankind and worth exploring. The town common has got to be award-winning because it is beautiful and on par with the Public Gardens of Boston. There is great hiking at the Nashua River Walk or any of the fire roads around the reservoir Overall, the down town area has everything you need and the people here really pull together to help each other out.
Kimball Farm on Route 70 offers delicious ice-cream, antique car shows and a gift shop full of goodies. The car shows in summer are a huge draw.
