Southbridge

The Town of Southbridge, Massachusetts was incorporated in 1816. Southbridge is one of fourteen Massachusetts municipalities that have applied for, and been granted, city forms of government but wish to retain “The town of” in their official names. The Town of Southbridge is located just north of the Connecticut border in the Quinebaug River Valley of south-central Massachusetts. Comprised of approximately 21 square miles, Southbridge is an eclectic blend of hilly and flat, farmland and developed land, industry and downtown, and suburban, urban, and rural neighborhoods. Southbridge has a long history of manufacturing optical products, earning it the unofficial title “Eye of the Commonwealth”, in reference to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
