Tewksbury

Tewksbury

First settled in 1637, Tewksbury is a suburban community located 25 miles northwest of Boston on the uplands between the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. It borders the city of Lowell, as well as Andover, Dracut, Billerica, Wilmington, and Chelmsford. Tewksbury was gradually settled by residents of Billerica during the early decades of the 18th Century.

Notable public sculptures in Tewksbury include the Wamesit Indian Monument set on a granite boulder on Main Street and the Anne Sullivan-Helen Keller Monument also on Main. The bronze sculpture depicting the turning point in Keller’s life is dedicated to Sullivan, a longtime Tewksbury resident. Artist Mico Kaufman created both sculptures.

Tewksbury is also known for its several shopping centers and restaurants, and its easy access to the hospitals, cultural attractions and educational institutions in neighboring Lowell. The town is home to the Tewksbury Country Club, offering a 9-hole golf course open to the public, as well as the recently opened Wamesit Lanes Family Entertainment Center; a family-friendly destination offering year-round entertainment including Ten Pin and Candle Pin Bowling.
