Berlin Massachusetts the population of just over 2,800 is located in Worcester County. Berlin is about 41 miles to Boston and was first settled in 1665, though it was not incorporated into the Commonwealth of Massachusetts until 1812. Just over 13 square miles, Berlin is a low hilly area situated between the Nashua river and Assabet river valleys. In its early days, Berlin was home to the lumber and shoe industries, however by the 1800s much of its industry had converted into farm production such as eggs and asparagus. Today, that legacy is still visible in the community garden available to residents, which is over seven acres large. Berlin has four main neighborhoods: Berlin Center, the Woods, Eastbrook Estates, and Hilltop at The Woods. Berlin is bordered by Hudson, Marlboro, Bolton, Clinton, Boylston, and Northborough.
