Small New England Charm

Tyngsboro, also known as Tyngsboroug, is a historic, scenic town in northern Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Tyngsboro is 30 minutes from Boston along the Route 3 corridor and is located on the New Hampshire state line. It is known as the ‘gateway’ to the White Mountains. Until the late 1960s, according to the Real Estate Guide, the area was a vacation community with a large seasonal population. A series of lakes and ponds are scattered throughout the area. The town is split in two by the Merrimack River which runs roughly north-south near the center of town. The land is mostly rolling hills, small cleared fields, and wooded land —ideal for exploring outside! During the past three years, the area has experienced a tremendous burst in residential construction but has retained the charm of a rural community. Along with this growth, Tyngsboro has been able to offer services of a large community while still maintaining its small New England charm.

Get Outside!

Tyngsboro has hundreds of acres of protected forests, meadows, and wetlands where you can walk, watch wildlife, and enjoy nature with your family. The trails are open to all residents, and their guests, daily from dawn to dusk, year-round. Including the Tyngsboro/Lowell/Dracut State Forest, there are more than ten miles of walking trails in Tyngsboro. You can take a brisk hike amidst the fall colors. In the winter you can snowshoe or cross-country ski through the woods. Spring and summer invite you to walk/jog/hike your way around the woodland streams and to watch for birds and animals. From the Tyngsboro Real Estate Guide, here are some of the trails offered:
