Surrounded by natural barriers and swathes of farmland, the town of Topsfield really has its own little North Shore nook while still being only a 45-minute drive from downtown Boston. With a very quaint and practical downtown itself, and just up the hill from Danvers, Topsfield residents can always get whatever they need without much hassle.
Topsfield’s history is extensive and significant as the post-Civil War monument in the Topsfield Common represents those hundreds who fought in all of America’s significant wars. During its evolution from farmland into a town, Topsfield earned its money in shoemaking before integrating into the greater Boston area with the construction of route 128, now the Yankee Division Highway.
The town has a comfortable population, at a little over 6,000[*], which balloons in autumn during the famous Topsfield Fair, a throwback to the great fairs of old. The school system Masconemet Regional High School serves students in both Topsfield and Boxford, but is conveniently situated at the edge of Topsfield. Few towns if any can beat Topsfield for access to nature, with four state forests, two state parks and the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary hugging its borders.
