Living in Burlington, MA

Like much of the East Coast, Burlington's history dates far back into the early days of settlers in America. The area is thought to have been visited first by Europeans in 1621. They settled in the area, and the local population grew steadily. Burlington officially separated from other communities nearby and was incorporated in 1799.

There has been much speculation surrounding the choice of the name Burlington for the new town. The area had been called Shawsin, the Native American name for the area, which may have been a more logical choice. Locals have debated the origin of the town's name, but no substantial evidence has been discovered to pinpoint a reason behind it. Whatever the history of Burlington's name, locals are proud of their hometown and love to wonder about its origination.

Burlington has a population of about 24,500 residents. The small community has grown since its early colonial beginnings, but retains its unique small-town charm and quaint atmosphere.

Burlington Attractions and Special Events

Some of Burlington's most popular attractions surround its long history. The Marion Tavern at Grand View Farm is an architectural gem in the area. It is the only remaining connected farm complex built in the 19th century in the area. The property's name is believed to be derived from the "grand view" the farm had of the White Mountains.

Outdoor lovers will find the Landlocked Forest is a great place to get out and explore nature. With trails to hike, wildlife to watch and a new boardwalk to wander, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Some may even find arrowheads during their time here, as Native Americans occupied the area before European settlers came and developed the land. Discovering Burlington's history deep in the forest with friends and family or on a solo trek - either way you're bound to have a good time.
