Georgetown MA

Originally part of Rowley, MA, Georgetown was incorporated in 1838 and became a center for manufacturing. The most important industry became shoemaking, which continued through 1970 when the last shoe factory closed. Today, Georgetown is mostly residential, with a population of 8,183 (2010 census). It is a quiet town with a good school system and is lauded for its strong sense of community and friendly neighborhoods. Its proximity to route 95 allows easy access to destinations north and south, including the coasts of New Hampshire, Maine, and Boston, which is only 30 miles south. Still somewhat rural in nature, Georgetown has a town center with several stores and restaurants.
