Quality of Life

As an integral part of the “Birth of the American Industrial Revolution” Grafton is grounded in a rich history and committed to the future. Characterized then by farms, villages, and factories, the built landscape has changed over time, particularly in the past decade, when the Town was one of the fastest growing communities in Central Massachusetts. Fortunately, the Town has taken active measures to support its historic landscapes. In addition, the town has the Grafton Land Trust which independently, and in partnership with the Town, has worked to preserve significant open space and promote its active use.
