Town of Groveland, Ma
Urban design of Groveland fronts along the Merrimac river and then abutts by the wagon-wheel corridors of Georgetown leaving, Groveland
to be designed primarly by land holdings. A small town, Groveland is a bedroom community of neighboring
towns and they like it that way.
Self described as reatining all of the characteristics of a friendly rural town in the setting of a convenient suburb. The town was
incorporated 1850, late in the state's history,
after spending the 17th and 18th centuries attached first to Rowley and then to Bradford. Groveland changed
gradually during the 20th century from a shoe industry and textile manufacturing community to one which is
almost wholly residential, serving now as a suburb of nearby cities.
Groveland's downtown is framed by the gazebo in Elm Park. The park was orginally named "Constitution Park"
when first created in 1832, it was only in 1857 that the elm trees arrived and with it the park's new name. Elm
Park was the first planned housing development in the area. House lots were laid out around the common
and the owners of which given rights to the well at the south end of the common. By the 1950s,
Dutch elm disease had ravaged most of the trees. In the early 1960s, the last tree was taken down and the
park's fountain dismantled. In 1990, Groveland received the first of several state grants to restore Elm Park
and planted disease resistant Elm.

with children and some grownups riding their bicycles about and walking.
