Framingham, MA

Framingham, MA shares pre-revolutionary war roots with the neighboring communities of Wayland, Sherborn and Sudbury, and robust diversity with the nearby cities of Boston and Worcester. Slightly larger than twenty-six square miles, Framingham is a small town with urban appeal.

Home to the abolitionist movement of the 1850s and the first mall east of the Mississippi River in the 1950s, Framingham is the fourteenth most populous municipality in Massachusetts. Its proximity to major highways, Amtrak and bus lines, commuter rail service and two airports makes Framingham a commuter's dream location.

Framingham's historic downtown area offers extensive cultural opportunities and is home to Framingham State University, all within a few miles of the corporate headquarters of retail, biotech and health service corporations, dedicated conservation land, public beaches, the largest landscaped collection of native wildflowers in New England and the aptly named Golden Triangle, the largest retail destination in the Boston area. Framingham has 14 public schools, numerous private schools, nearby regional vocational, charter, and post-secondary schools. Framingham's public schools have a 12.6:1 pupil-to-teacher ratio, and 85% of seniors attend college after graduation.

The average commute of a Framingham resident is seventeen minutes, compared with twenty-six minutes nationally. Framingham's diverse workforce has multiple housing options, which range from apartments and condominiums to small and mid-sized single and multi-family houses, to larger homes with substantial acreage. The medium income of a residential homeowner is just over $75,000, and the medium home price is in the mid- to high $350,000 range. It is little wonder that the population of the small town of Framingham with the big city allure has grown at a rate of 9.57% in the first decade of 2000 to its current population of just 71,200. Money Magazine recently recognized Framingham as among the top forty places to live in the United States.
