Millbury, adjacent to the City of Worcester is a rural residential community contrasted by a densely developed industrial zone at its border with Worcester and a similarly built up commercial district in its downtown. However, despite these two areas of high activity, the town is primarily a community of single-family homes in rural/ suburban settings of residences featuring quarter to full acre lots spread out among open space.
Millbury began its history when Boston proprietors bought an 8 square mile plantation from Native Americans in 1704. Early on, this land that also encompassed pieces of what would later become the towns of Sutton and Auburn, was found to be prosperous for grain and dairy farming. Later, manufacturing developed from water power along the Blackstone River and its tributaries that run through Millbury. Early production included: fulling and grist mills, iron refining and gun making. Eventually by the 19th century, there was paper and textile manufacturing. The town grew steadily as its employment base drew new residents.
Today, 12,000 residents live in Millbury which covers approximately 16 square miles. Major highways through the town include Routes 20 and 146, as well as the Massachusetts Turnpike Route 90 that is the major east-west artery of the state and links Millbury with Boston, 43 miles away. Millbury's close proximity to Worcester offers residents everything the city offers as the cultural hub of central Massachusetts.
Music and theater are featured at Mechanics Hall, Performing Arts School of Worcester, and Foothills Theatre. Museums including the Worcester Art Museum, Worcester Historical Museum and Higgins Armory Museum, regularly schedule special exhibitions and present an array of fun and educational programs for everyone. Small galleries around the city feature work by both new and established artists.
Millbury's housing market offers both spaciously proportioned new constructions and charming antique historic homes. Historically rich in mill village history, Millbury has worked with other communities and with the Blackstone River National Heritage Corridor to improve the water quality and public enjoyment of the river that has played such an important role in the town's three centuries of development.
