Very small town most people know each-other and are friendly. Not very diverse and community seems to be a bit older although there is an average amount of youth/ children. Very good school systems, and is in a great location. Worcester is extremely close and Boston isn't too far either.

I have resided in Paxton for about 15 years now. It is a wonderful town to raise a family. I live in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood, with a dead end. I feel more than safe walking around alone and I feel that it's safe enough to let children play outside without any supervision. The only thing I would mention are the coyotes and wildlife at night. It is not safe to let cats or dogs outside during these hours
I moved to paxton when I was in the 7th grade and experienced a whole different educational perspective. Since graduating high school I have moved out of the small town, but I'd love to back one day to raise a family.
