STOW is in Middlesex County about 25 miles west of Boston and about 28 miles east of Worcester. The town, a small rural community of about 6,900 people, has an abundance of rolling hills and rustic country lanes.
Stow was officially incorporated in 1683 with an area of approximately 40 square miles. Over centuries it gave up land as newer, smaller towns were created, ceding land to Harvard (1732), Shirley (1765), Boxborough (1783), Hudson (1866) and Maynard (1871). Stow now has an area of 18.1 square miles. Stow was primarily sparsely settled farm and orchard land until the 1950s.
Nothing is lovelier than an old New England apple orchard in full bloom. But Stow has more than apple orchards. Stow has a four-seasons kind of beauty that makes it ideal as a place for growing up and coming back too. Well known for it’s four golf courses offering 81 holes in total, wildlife sanctuary and an American Heritage Musuem.
