About the Town of Acton

The beautiful town of Acton was settled in 1735. Not unlike many neighboring communities, Acton has close ties to the Revolutionary War. In fact, the Acton Minutemen were instrumental in the Battle of Lexington and Concord at the North Bridge. Aside from its abundant history, residents of this loosely populated town appreciate its schools, lush forests, and beautiful wetlands. Do you enjoy biking, walking, or running?
