Tewksbury is centrally located between Boston (south) and the state border with New Hampshire (North) making the drive in and out about 20 miles in either direction. Rtes 495 and 93 are easily accessible with the historic city of Lowell located to the west.
Smaller state highways 38 and 133 disect the town with Route 38 running the length. This town of approximately 32,000 residents sits between the Concord and Merrimack Rivers and is 21 square miles in area.
Tewksbury was settled in the early 1700's from neighboring Billerica where farms and grazing animals were very common sites and fueled the economy. Early growth was borne out of lumbering with Trull Brook in North Tewksbury, the location of a large saw mill. Many local tradesmen and builders have roots in Tewksbury dating to its settlement and incorporation in 1734.
As recently as the 1980's, the remnants of the last of many flower growers were easily recognized by their greenhouses and neat garden rows over acres of the valley land. Prior to my careet in real estate, I owned retail flower shop in Andover and I remember I made Tewksbury by destination for specialty green plants and flowering plants many time during the year to hand select the very best. Very active greenhouse businesses began around 1890 and were the economy's engine through the mid 1970's. Growers took advantage of water resources and grew prize winning plants and flowers supplying the Boston Flower Market and markets all over the world with cut carnations and other plant and flower selections.
Today, Tewksbury attracts large and small national and international companies, with tax incentives as an Economic Target Area (identified by the Comm. off Mass.) along with its prime location and infrastructure.
