The historic town of Bellingham, Massachusetts, founded in 1719, is located in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. Norfolk County has been nicknamed the “County of Presidents” because four United States presidents were born there: both John and John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy, and George H.W. Bush. This lovely “home town” is comprised of 18.55 square miles, with a population of approximately 16,300 residents. Bellingham lies on the southwestern fringe of Boston, along the outer belt corridor of Route 495. The predominate business in the Bellingham area is a mix of industry and distributions centers, as well as extensive retail establishments. Additional shopping and dining opportunities can be easily enjoyed in the towns of Mendon, Milford, Franklin, Norfolk, and Woonsocket, which are all within 2.5 miles of peaceful Bellingham.
The picturesque Bellingham Town Common features a lovely victorian gazebo. Children play safely on the playground, visible at all times by parents exercising as they walk a circular path around the common. The Town Common is also the site for summer lunchtime reading programs and summer concerts. Easily accessible grocery stores abound in the family-friendly community of Bellingham, as do retail shopping venues.
