Westford is a charming Massachusetts town that has a rich history and culture. Founded in 1729, citizens from the town played several roles in the Revolutionary War. Evidence of this history permeates throughout the town, including a bell cast by Paul Revere, whose son attended Westford Academy.
Westford started to grow in the early 20th century, serving as the residential area for Lowell and Boston workers. Luckily, despite this rapid growth, Westford has maintained much of its historical charm, and CNN Money rated it the 11th best place to live in the United States.
