Groveland, MA Practices Fiscal Conservatism

Real Estate Agent with Buyers Brokers Only, LLC

Groveland, Massachusetts maintains a rural feel and emphasizes preventive maintenance and fiscal conservatism rather than freely spending on new buildings, according to a Boston Globe article published November 19, 2006.

"There has been steady growth in single-family homes . But with nearly one-third of the town part of the Crane Pond Wildlife Management Area, and another 47 acres preserved as Veasy Park, 'There are still a lot of trees, a lot of the feeling of wooded areas . . . even with the building that's going on,' [administrative assistant to the Board of Selectmen Nancy] Lewandowski said."

Incorporated in 1850, Groveland's northern border is the Merrimack River, and the town is adjacent to Haverhill, Georgetown, Boxford, and West Newbury. Groveland was a part of Rowley from 1630 to 1675 and a part of Bradford from 1675 to 1850.

The town maintains a rural atmosphere, but enjoys the benefits of an urban lifestyle with Haverhill, MA nearby. Town residents also have easy access to Interstate 95 and Interstate 495.

Groveland is part of the Pentucket Regional School District.
