Welcome to the Wilmington Massachusetts local guide and business directory providing community information, news and pictures. Wilmington was formed as an independent town in 1730 and has retained a high portion of its historic beginnings in the form of 18th century houses. The Baldwin apple is supposed to have been discovered here in the 1790's on Butters Farm and after some heavy disagreements with other communities in the area, a bronze plaque duly commemorates the discovery.
For quite some time in the 17 and 1800s Wilmington was largely a farming community and so the Middlesex Canal was built so that the residents could ship their produce to market. The largest shipments were of hops because Wilmington was the largest grower of hops in the state.
The recently built commuter rail train station has plenty of parking and is a convenient alternative to driving. An early railroad corridor served to connect Wilmington to Boston, Lowell and Andover. It was completed in 1836 and trolley lines were set up in the late 19th century. At this time the town was primarily an agricultural economy growing fruit, vegetables and cranberries and there were also a number of slaughterhouses. The major industry in Wilmington was the Perry, Cutler and Co. tannery.
After the completion of Route 128 the population of Wilmington has more than quadrupled and it has become a popular choice for professionals to purchase single family residences for their families to grow and thrive in. Nowadays it is rare to even see a farm in Wilmington-but upscale executive type developments are becoming more common place. Given the fact that it is nestled between Routes 128, 93 and 3A, it has become a commuter's dream location which has lots to offer the growing family.

Reading Abutters On September 15, 2014, Kinder Morgan filed the pre-application for their controversial proposal to expand gas infrastructure in New England. The project, called "Energy Direct", would cut across central New England to Dracut and then head south through populated neighborhoods and conservation lands, taking property from thousands of landowners by eminent domain in five towns just east of I-93, including north Wilmington. The "Lynnfield Lateral," according to the company, would be one of the highest operating pressure gas lines in New England if built. There has been no assurance from that most of the gas sent through the line would be for domestic use. Note: in accordance with public library regulations, this is a free public event open to all.
