welcome to wilmington

Wilmington is a suburban town, occupying 17.2 acres of the Ipswich River watershed. Formed as an independent town in 1730, it has retained a high number of 18th- century houses.  The Baldwin Apple is supposed to have been discovered in Wilmington in the 1790s on Butters Farm; one can still visit the monument today.

​Wilmington serves as a popular choice for professionals who are looking to purchase a family home.  Nestled between Routes 128, 93, and 3A, with easy access to the T, Wilmington has become a commuter's dream.  

In addition, one can experience Wilmington's community spirit via various activities held on the Town Common.  Some of these include the yearly Easter egg hunt, community craft fair, summer concerts, week-long Fourth of July festivities, and the Farmers Market, which is open Sundays during the summer.
