Great schools, family oriented, affordable. There is some industry, not much. The local college is an excellent choice for a business future.
Dudley is a small town in central MA. Located 30 minutes from Worcester, 45 minutes from Springfield and an hourish from Hartford, CT or Boston, MA it is a great place to commute to work and raise a family. We do have at least 5 Dunkin Donuts in town so there is never a shortage on ice coffee.
