For our Community...

Ashburnham and Westminster are located in North Worcester County, approximately 50 miles northwest of Boston, along the Massachusetts-New Hampshire border. Each town was incorporated over 200 years ago. Both towns are growing with a combined population exceeding 13,500 residents and a K-12 student enrollment of over 2,400.  The communities economic bases have been strengthened by recent local development in high technology, manufacturing, and recreation. Although the character of the communities remains rural/residential, the improving economic environment has made it possible to expand and enhance services to the towns' citizens.  The educational, cultural and recreational resources of the area are excellent. Both communities have easy access to Worcester and Boston, Massachusetts and Keene, New Hampshire.
