Burlington through the years

Burlington began as a small agricultural town, known for its shoe-making shops, but its role has changed throughout the years. Once consisting of around 70 homes, it became the fastest-growing town in Massachusetts from 1955-1965, when Route 128 was completed. Today, the area is known for technology and healthcare, but several original homes still stand. You can even visit some of them, like the historic Francis Wyman homestead, as you follow the Burlington Heritage Trail.
