Middleton MA

As Middleton was tucked between two important 17th Century towns—Salem and Andover—geography proved to be the determining factor for the town’s name.

Almost 400 years later and the addition of Boston as a new “anchor” town, Middleton’s name and location are still relevant. The town is only a 30-minute drive to the Hub. Over the years, as people flocked to this 14.4-square-mile suburban site, Middleton earned a reputation for being welcoming and is often characterized as a “small community in a single neighborhood.”

Back in the day, however, Middleton was a thriving farming community and still has many open fields and recreational areas including Middleton and Andover Meadow Ponds. By the 18th Century, iron working was a prevalent industry but today, healthcare and educational opportunities are among a wide variety of industries driving new economic growth.
