The town of Ashland sits almost right between Boston and Worcester, and it's one of the youngest towns in eastern Massachusetts. It was founded in 1846 and named after the estate of Kentucky senator Henry Clay. The town's biggest claim to fame is the birthplace of the electric clock, and it was invented in this town in 1916 by Henry E. Warren. The clock factories have since closed, but there's still lots of work to go around and lots of places to call home.
Ashland High School is considered one of the top schools in Massachusetts and its new building was built in 2005. The town also has an elementary school and a middle school. There's also a commuter rail service that runs all the way to Boston or Worcester on the Framingham/Worcester Line. Residents also enjoy the town's many shops, restaurants and a farmer's market that takes place in warmer months. One of the town's biggest draws is Ashland State Park, which sits on over 450 acres of land and the Ashland Reservoir. People come from throughout the area to go hiking on its many trails or take a boat out onto the water.
The community also has plenty of rental options such as a 1,419 square foot home currently available on Cherry Street. This 3-bedroom and 2-bath home includes a detached garage, a large backyard and a kitchen with appliances. Each of the house's two floors has a bathroom while the main floor also has an enclosed porch, which makes this a perfect option for families.
Options for individuals include condo shares such as a 1,000 square foot condo on Trailside Way. Renters will have their own bedroom and bathroom but share a kitchen, living room, dining room and laundry. Utilities are included, but no pets are allowed.
