Living in Dracut, MA

The small town was originally known as Augumtoocooke and was inhabited by members of the Pennacook Native tribe, who settled there for the abundant game found within the marshes surrounding the region. The legendary Algonquin chief Passaconaway and his family spent most of their time on Dracut's land during the 16th and 17th centuries until settlers took over the lands.

Throughout the next few centuries, the town underwent different ownerships by both a number of native tribes and settlers. The economy relied heavily on fishing and lumber milling, which later led to the implementation of paper making and textile manufacturing facilities.

Despite the modern renovations and housing development that was built, the town's historical charm has remained intact. There are a number of rural spaces preserved within Dracut, including a significant number of the town's historical houses. One of the most well-known homes in the area is the Colburn/Cutter House, which dates back to 1717.

Dracut Attractions and Special Events

Besides the historical aspect of the town, there are a number of outdoor activities that residents can enjoy in Dracut.
