Town Profile top of page

The Town of Chelmsford is a suburban industrial town located in the Merrimack Valley, bordered by Lowell and Tyngsborough on the north, Billerica and Tewksbury on the east, Carlisle on the south, and Westford on the west. Chelmsford is 24 miles north of Boston, 40 miles northeast of Worcester.

Much of its present area was contained in a so-called Praying Town, established as a preserve for Christianized Indians in 1653, so the community had a bit of a slow start. But fresh water fishing, access to abundant fish runs in Merrimack and Concord, and good agricultural lands along its rivers attracted residents and there was rapid growth in the community after the eighteenth century annexation of the Indian lands.
