About Wilmington

Wilmington’s History

Wilmington is rich in New England history – settled in 1665, Minutemen from Wilmington responded to the call to fight
for their fledgling country at Lexington and Concord in the Revolutionary War. In later years, the town was an integral part of Massachusetts’ agricultural and milling industries with both canal and railroad transport.
Today, Wilmington continues as a thriving and sought after suburban community with two commuter train lines and close proximity to the Anderson Regional Transportation Center. Conveniently located to Routes 93, 495, 3 and 95/128 points of interest both North and South are easily accessed. Less than 30 minutes to Boston or NH recreation and vacation destinations are at the disposal of Wilmington Residents.
A small town, evolving to meet the modern day needs of its community members, Wilmington now offers a Farmer’s Market and our newly completed Yentile Farm Recreational Facility. Wilmington currently has 6.7 miles of public walking trails with a plan to add more in the near future. The many established businesses and above average-ranked schools, including our new Wilmington High School, round out this community as a great place to live.
