Reading is a town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States, 10 miles north of central Boston. The population was 24,747 at the 2010 census.
Many of the Massachusetts Bay Colony's original settlers arrived from England in the 1630s through the ports of Lynn and Salem. In 1639, some citizens of Lynn petitioned the government of the colony for a "place for an inland plantation." They were initially granted six square miles, followed by an additional four. The first settlement in this grant was first called "Lynn Village" and was located on the south shore of the "Great Pond," now known as Lake Quannapowitt. On June 10, 1644, the settlement was incorporated as the town of Reading, taking its name from the town of Reading in England.
The town of Reading was initially governed by an open town meeting and a board of selectmen, a situation that persisted until the 1940s. In 1693, the town meeting voted to fund public education in Reading, with grants of 4 pounds for three months school in the town, 2 pounds for the west end of the town, and 1 pound for those north of the Ipswich River. In 1769, the meeting house was constructed, in the area which is now the Common in Reading. A stone marker commemorates the site.
According to the United States census bureau, the town has a total area of 9.9 square miles. No significant amount of land is covered permanently by water, although there is a plethora of vernal pools in various areas of conservation land. Reading borders the towns of Woburn, Stoneham, Wakefield, Lynnfield, North Reading and Wilmington.
Reading, Massachusetts, gets 47 inches of rain per year. The U.S. average is 37. Snowfall is 62 inches. The average US city gets 25 inches of snow per year. The number of days with any measurable precipitation is 133.
On average, there are 197 sunny days per year in Reading, Massachusetts. The July high is around 82 degrees. The January low is 15. The comfort index, which is based on humidity during the hot months, is a 50 out of 100, where higher is more comfortable. The U.S. average on the comfort index is 44.
