Welcome to Grafton
According to Niche Media, Grafton “is one of the best places to live in Massachusetts.” Once a rural community, Grafton now has a number of new subdivisions that draw new residents and a population of 19,664. Grafton has the look and feels of a quintessential New England town. Residents will enjoy Summer Concerts on the Common, a Farmer’s Market at the Municipal Center, swimming and kayaking at Silver Lake Beach, and use of the many ball fields and parks. Fall brings a Scarecrow Building Contest on the Common and a Turkey Challenge road race at Thanksgiving.
Commuters appreciate the MBTA Commuter Rail Station located near Tufts University's Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine on the Framingham/Worcester line.
According to Niche Media, Grafton Public Schools is a highly rated, public school district with 3,205 students in grades PK, K-12 with a student-teacher ratio of 13 to 1.
