Only 7 square miles, the small town of Clinton has a surprising amount to offer to its 13,600 residents who call it home. Incorporated into the Massachusetts Commonwealth in 1850, Clinton developed as a mill town powered by the Nashua River, and was particularly well known for its carpets. In the 1970s and '80s, many of the mills were repurposed by modern entrepreneurs. Today, Clinton still benefits from much of its history, and residents can enjoy an afternoon at Fuller Field, the oldest continually used baseball field in the world. The Mass Central Rail Trail, which will be 104 miles at completion, currently has 25 miles of trail for biking and hiking already finished, built along the path of historic train tracks.
Clinton is bordered by the towns of Lancaster, Sterling, Bolton, Berlin, and Boylston. Located at the norther end of the Wauchusett Reservoir, Clinton sits between Interstates 190 and 495 west/east, and between Rt. 2, and the Mass Pike north/south.
