Ashburnham Reviews

Ashburnham is a nice, small town with an excellent school system. It provides a great environment for growing up as a school-aged child and teenager. The only issues with Ashbunrham is that it is a bit far from bigger cities and there is not much to do within the town itself. Overall, it is an excellent place to live if you are willing to have a longer commute for work/recreational activities.
Review Ashburnham
Ashburnham use to have many camps surrounding the lakes which are almost all privately owned now. Being a mostly forest filled area, we don't have many stores except a few down town and a gas station/dunkin donuts on the edge of town. I wouldn't call it modern by any stretch. But the atmosphere is peaceful and beautiful to me. I know lovely people and lovely places.
The town appears to be obsolete, but the land and the view of the woods are fairly beautiful. There are no nearby shopping centers and the people are somewhat friendly.
