A medium-sized town about 19 miles northwest of Boston, Tewksbury was originally part of the neighboring town of Billerica when it was settled as early as 1637. In 1734, Tewksbury was incorporated as its own town into the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. With a population now totalling almost 29,000 residents thanks to high percentage of condos as the Tewksbury housing as well as the development of business parks in the town, Tewksbury is great for those who work locally.
For those who will commute elsewhere, Tewksbury is on Routes 93 and 495. It is also accessible by the Lowell REgional Transit Authority, which services from Lowell, through Tewksbury, to Wilmington. Tewksbury borders the surrounding towns of Lowell, Dracut, Andover, Wilmington, Billerica, and Chelmsford.
