Our geography

The Town of Southbridge is located just north of the Connecticut border in the Quinebaug River Valley of south-central Massachusetts. The Town is in close proximity to Routes 90, 20, 84 and 395 with convenient access to Hartford, Springfield, Providence, Boston, and Worcester. Comprised of about 21 square miles, Southbridge is an eclectic blend of hilly and flat, farmland and developed land, industry and downtown, and suburban, urban, and rural neighborhoods.

How we grew

The industrial revolution brought rapid growth to Southbridge, and with growth came varied neighborhoods and a thriving downtown with Victorian architecture and large, shady streets. Industry also brought successive waves of immigration as people from many nationalities moved here to work in the mills. Neighborhoods developed near industry, while outlying areas remained largely agricultural. By the 1950's infrastructure had caught up to the needs of a busy populace, and today, our population of 17,400 reflects the history of our development and its cultural diversity.

Our treasure

We are fortunate to have so many amenities; four renovated schools, a beautifully proportioned downtown, full service fire and police, 3,000 acre watershed with state-of-the-art filtration plant, newly renovated and expanded public library, well maintained wastewater treatment plant, a municipal airport, YMCA, attractive Town Common, full service hospital, four large parks, trails linking to US Army Corps of Engineers dam and recreation area, state conservation area with developed hiking trails, an arts center with galleries and amateur theater, and more!

Our government

Southbridge has a Town Manager/Town Council form of government with five geo-political precincts. The Town Manager reports to a nine-member Town Council and its five subcommittees. Televised Council meetings and School Committee meetings are held twice monthly in the McKinnon Council Chambers on the second floor of the Town Hall. Information about the Town Manager, Council and all Town Departments can be gained by clicking the Town Departments and Offices tab. Boards, commissions and committees have their own tab, as do the School Department and the Jacob Edwards Library.
