Situated just 20 miles northwest of Boston in Middlesex County, North Billerica is one of nine hamlets that make up the town of Billerica. This small village sits along the Concord River and is home to several historic sites, including the oldest remaining homestead in Billerica, the Manning Manse, built in 1696.
During the early part of the 20th century, Boston and Maine Railroad built repair yards in North Billerica that later expanded into a large industrial park. Today, it is still the headquarters for Pan Am Railways.
Along the railroad lines behind Faulkner Mills, workers of the old industrial park started a neighborhood that became known as Garden City because of the elaborate gardens the residents planted there. Garden City is considered one of America’s oldest suburbs, and North Billerica is still a great place for those wishing to rent apartments close to Boston.
