Westford is a town of over 22,000 residents (21,951 in 2010) northwest of Boston along I-495. It was originally part of Chelmsford, but was incorporated as the town of Westford in 1729.
Westford has several distinct areas: Forge Village; Nabnasset; Graniteville; Parker Village; and Center of Town. The town's Master Plan maintains a distinction between the Commercial and Residential zones of the town, divided by Route 495. This allows for growth in the town while maintaining the character of this lovely area, and a balance of open spaces, without encroachment of commercial development as you approach Westford's Historic Town Center.
nnWestford also boasts a small ski area, Nashoba Valley, and a regionally well-known ice cream stand, Kimball's Farm.
