Trade in the bright lights of the big city for small-town charm in Shrewsbury. A popular resort town since the 18th century, Shrewsbury is known for its rolling countryside, scenic Lake Quinsigamond, and a wealth of open space. It's a major destination for winter sports, and you'll find plenty of spots for skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding.

Things to do

History repeats itself in Shrewsbury

History buffs will find lots to do in Shrewsbury, starting with the General Artemas Ward House. Built in 1727, the house belonged to a general in the Revolutionary War; nowadays it's operated by Harvard University, and the museum is open to the public for tours during the summer months. Got a sweet tooth? Then head to the Hebert Candy Mansion, a chocolate factory and retail shop in a historic Tudor-style mansion. A popular spot with local families, the confectioner also hosts private events, ice cream socials, and summertime "cruise nights" for car enthusiasts.
