All About Stow

Nothing is lovelier than an old New England apple orchard in full bloom. Nowhere is that fact more evident than in Stow, MA. But Stow has more than apple orchards going for it. Stow has a four seasons kind of beauty that makes it ideal as a place for growing up and coming back.

The town of Stow, a small rural community of about 7,200, has an abundance of softly rolling hills and rustic country lanes. It is in Middlesex County, about 25 miles west of Boston and 28 miles east of Worcester.

Before its incorporation in 1683, Stow was called Pompositticut Plantation, a name still much in evidence. The townspeople, in general, are concerned about preserving Stow’s historical past. At the same time, they encourage residential growth that protects those who live there now and in the future.
