FRAMINGHAM
Massachusetts, U.S.A.
HOME TO THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE
Welcome to Framingham, Massachusetts.
The Town of Framingham is situated around 20 miles west of downtown Boston, in Middlesex County. Home to around 68,000 residents, Framingham is the 14th most populated municipality in the state. In 2012, CNN Money magazine ranked Framingham as #36 on their "Best Places to Live in US" list. Framingham was founded in 1700, and is part of the multi-town region Metro West. The town features a distinct mix of urban, suburban and rural characteristics, and contains three nationally registered historic districts, as well as two local ones. History buffs will have plenty to do as Framingham is has over 300 historic homes. The town is widely recognized for the so-called Framingham Heart Study from 1948, when the community embarked on an ambitious project to identify factors of heart disease. The study was held over a long period of time and involved a large group of town participants. Framingham is also known for the Dennison Manufacturing Company, which was founded in 1844 as a jewelry and watch box manufacturing company. The owner, Aaron Lufkin Denison, became the pioneer of the American System of Watch Manufacturing. The town is one of the few places in Massachusetts that have met the requirements for affordable housing, and the town has a large number of lower-income rental units. South Framingham mainly features single-family houses in small lots, as well as multi-family homes and apartments. However, you'll find a multitude of larger and more expensive homes around Salem End Road on the West Side of South Framingham. For the most part, this area is overlooked since it is secluded from most of the South Side by reservoirs and the Sudbury River. Down at the pretty shores of Learned and Gleason Ponds, you'll find many large Victorian houses, and also along Concord Street and Union Avenue near downtown. Most of the multi-story apartment buildings are situated around the West Side along Route 9. For shopping and dining, head to The Golden Triangle on the eastern side of Framingham. The triangle comprises one of the largest shopping districts in all of New England, and features a multitude of stores, restaurants and entertainment options!
