The town of Burlington was formed in 1799 and is sited on the watersheds of Ipswich, Mystic and Shawsheen Rivers. It is now a suburban industrial town at the junction of the Boston-Merrimack corridor, but for most of Burlington's history the town was almost entirely agricultural, selling hops and rye to Boston's breweries. Today visitors enjoy a variety of shopping and dining choices at the Burlington Mall, an upscale shopping center featuring for anchor stores and more than 185 specialty shops.
Burlington is also home to many companies in the high-tech, banking and pharmaceutical industries and is one of the largest employers north of Boston. The town is also home to the famous Lahey Clinic, known as one of New England's best hospitals. For residents, Burlington offers a mixture of older and newer neighborhoods including a large stock of apartment housing. In spite of the town's heavy development, Burlington's Mill Pond Conservation Area and Landlocked Forest together offer more than 350 acres of fishing, hiking and mountain biking.
