We took this information from the Wilmington town website. http://www.town.wilmington.ma.us/Pages/WilmingtonMA_WebDocs/about

Wilmington was first settled in 1665 and was officially incorporated in 1730, from parts of Woburn, Reading and Billerica. Minutemen from Wilmington responded to the alarm on April 19, 1775 and fought at Merriam's Corner in Concord. Wilmington men also fought at Bunker Hill.

Wilmington is where the Baldwin apple was discovered.

Wilmington is also home to the Col. Joshua Harnden Tavern, which probably served as a stop on the underground railroad and now houses the Wilmington Town Museum.

Since the completion of Route 128, Wilmington's population has quadrupled. Route 93, Route 62 and Route 38 also help to make Wilmington an easy place from which to commute to Boston.

Businessweek named Wilmington the Best Affordable Suburb in Massachusetts in its March 2, 2010 edition. The magazine set out to identify America's best affordable suburbs following an evaluation of nearly 900 suburban communities across the country. One community in each state was selected based upon a variety of criteria designed to measure affordability and quality of living.

We really enjoy living in Wilmington and think it would be a great location for an episode of Yard Crashers!
