Travel Guide

Woburn showing street scenes and an administrative building

From the Baldwin Mansion to the Winn Memorial Library, see nearly every New England architectural style in this historic town north of Boston.

Woburn, Massachusetts, is one of the oldest communities in New England. First settled in 1640, it was a focal point of Patriot activity during the Revolutionary War. In the 19th century, it was an important hub of tanning and rubber production. Today, enjoy the historic charm of this bustling Boston suburb.

Walk along the scenic Middlesex Canal, which runs through Woburn. From 1803 to 1853, the 27-mile (43-kilometer) barge canal fostered industry in towns between Boston and the Merrimack River. Retrace the steps of local tanning and rubber merchants.

Spot dozens of beautiful historic buildings as you stroll through town. Examine the ornate Federal style of the lemon-colored 1790 House. Across the Middlesex Canal, see the cube-shaped Baldwin Mansion, built in Colonial American style, and now hosting a Chinese restaurant.

Learn about the scientific triumphs of Count Rumford at his birthplace, Benjamin Thompson House. The scientist and inventor, born Benjamin Thompson, designed the famous Rumford fireplace. In the house, admire recreations of his experiments and inventions.

Look for the basilica-like Woburn Public Library. The Romanesque Revival building, designed by famed Victorian-era architect H.H. Richardson, has housed the library since 1881. Walk through the iconic two-story barrel-vaulted Reading Room, which looks like something from a movie set.

Visit the welcoming First Congregational Church in Woburn. Established in 1642, the congregation is one of the oldest in the nation. Look up at the 196-foot (60-meter) steeple, which is one of the tallest wooden steeples in North America. Check out the historic E&GG Hook organ, which has been played for visitors since the current church’s construction in 1860.

Enjoy nature at Horn Pond Conservation Area. Go canoeing or try fishing. Walk along the 2-mile (3-kilometer) trail that circles the pond. Hike up nearby Horn Pond Mountain and enjoy beautiful panoramic views.

Boston is just 11 miles (18 kilometers) southeast of Woburn. Drive to the state’s capital in under 30 minutes or take the commuter rail, which runs frequently.
