3 comments on “Harvard”

A quiet, simple town packed with towering trees and colonial stone walls is what immediately stands out when entering Harvard, Massachusetts. Amongst the forests are numerous apple orchards that offer honey sticks and juicy honeycrisp apples at the height of autumn. Under the thick canopy of leaves are twisting trails, each path connecting to various others to create hidden shortcuts.

Harvard is a rural town about 35 miles outside of Boston. Although the town population is small compared to other densely populated areas in Massachusetts, it is large and has a school district. A large pond and its accompanying beach are a popular location among residents and local events are held here during summer. This small town is perfect for people who want to experience rural life and still have access to chain stores requiring a short commute to nearby cities.

In the center of town sits the Harvard General Store that is run by a local family and is always stocked with local farm products and homemade meals. All through the summer, Harvard hosts a farmer’s market to sell homegrown produce and supply the town with local food. Harvard is a picturesque town. The people who live in Harvard make it into an inviting, warm home for anyone who comes. The town is always welcoming.
