Overview of Woburn

Woburn is a historical town nestled in the beautiful surroundings that New England is famous for. Located halfway between Lowell and Boston, Woburn sits at the head of the Mystic River Valley. The city streets are lined with buildings from every historical architectural style that one would expect to find in New England and adds to the city’s historical importance. The city has over 38,000 residents who agree with the city website’s declaration that “Woburn is a great place to live, work, retire and raise a family.” They enjoy a longstanding tradition of volunteering and civic participation with a passion for sports and recreation. With something to offer for people of all ages and backgrounds, Woburn apartments for rent are very desirable.

Living in Woburn, MA

Named after a city in Bedfordshire, England, Woburn was officially incorporated in 1642. The town is famous as the site of the first religious ordination in the Americas when Reverend Thomas Carter was sworn in as a Puritan minister that same year. Tanning, shoemaking and agriculture fueled the local economy for centuries, and when the Middlesex Canal was opened in 1803, local businesses had the means to trade their goods and receive additional supplies. Woburn is also famous as the home of Charles Goodyear’s “vulcanization” process that revolutionized the rubber industry in the early 19th century. Today, the city is a delightful mix of wooded conservation areas, quiet neighborhoods and thriving industrial parks that lead new residents to look for apartments in Woburn. 

Woburn Work and Study

American International College and Middlesex Community College in town join numerous college opportunities located just 12 miles away in the Boston metropolitan area. Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - two of the country’s most prestigious schools – are located here, and attract some of the brightest students in the world. Boston is also home to Bentley University, Berklee College of Music, Boston College, Boston University, Brandeis University, the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Suffolk University and the Boston Conservatory, among others, that make the city a hub for higher education.

Many people here also make their livings as blue collar workers in the service industries.
