Blackstone Massachusetts is a little town tucked in the Worcester district. It has livelihood, everywhere you go you will see a smiling face. It's a early nice family town, each and everyone would welcome you to there home. The only thing that could be improved is the schooling. It isn't the best, it's slowly getting better but in my time of heading of to elemtary school and middle school wasn't good. Besides that, it's a great town. Wonderful people too
Review Blackstone
I've lived in Blackstone for most of my life. Growing up i always thought very highly of the town. Lately though, it seems crime and drugs have become more of a problem. My brother has had two of his bikes stolen, my uncles and friends 4wheelers have been stolen. And lastly just a few months ago a man was murdered just four houses down from me.
Property being stolen from friends and family has become worse over the last 10 years or so in Blackstone. I had personally never known of anyone being murdered in the town but that happened just a few months ago. The police are around often, no concerns there.
