Millbury is a town of over 13,000 located in the heart of Massachusetts, and is the northernmost town in the Blackstone River Valley. Whether by car, air or train, access to Millbury is easy. It is located at the intersection of Route 146 and I-90 (the Mass Pike) on the south edge of Worcester.
Historically rich in mill village history, the Town evolved around the resources of the Blackstone River. In recent years, the Town has worked with other communities and with the Blackstone River National Heritage Corridor to improve the water quality and public enjoyment of the River. The Blackstone River Bikeway, links Millbury with Worcester to the north, and will link to Pawtucket, RI to the south.
The largest economic development project in the Town's history was completed in 2004. The Shoppes at Blackstone Valley provide more than 750,000 square feet of shopping and dining experiences. The complex also includes the 14-screen Blackstone Valley 14 Cinema De Lux movie theatre.
Millbury is a community rich in history and natural resources. At the same time, Millbury is in the forefront of development resulting from multi-million dollar highway improvements, including a second exit on the Mass Pike which provides easy access to Worcester and Providence. It is a truly wonderful community, with active partnerships that provide stewardship both to our resources and to our economy.
