Central Massachusetts Real Estate Suggestions
MA : Charming, Small Town Atmosphere Near Worcester
visited the central Massachusetts area and
With a wide main street featuring old Colonial homes with front porches, nice sidewalks for an evening stroll, senior and community centers, the classic intown Karl's Diner, an old-fashioned public library, a good town playground for the kids, churches with majestic steeples, its own public school system (not regionalized) and downtown services (CVS, Verizon, Bank of America, etc.), Oxford has an appealing small-town feel. It is accessible to major services in Worcester and Boston -- including some of the best hospitals in the northeast (like U/Mass Medical in Worcester). Oxford is also the birthplace of American Red Cross founder and humanitarian Clara Barton -- the Clara Barton Birthplace Museum is located in North Oxford).
Downtown Oxford is right off Route 395, making for an easy drive to the Massachusetts Turnpike, Worcester and Connecticut. Visit the Oxford Town Web Site for more information on this nice New England town. (photo and text by Eric H.)
