Driving through Grafton, Massachusetts you get the sense that they have the best of both worlds. The community has many lovely new developments yet there is an extraordinarily well preserved historic area. They seemed to have discovered that the two communities are not exclusive of each other and can live in harmony side by side. For this (and many other reasons) Grafton makes a great place to live.
Wandering the streets around the Grafton Common, you will revel in the abundance of beautiful, cared-for historic homes. South Street in Grafton, just off of the common, is one of the most scenic and pleasant streets in town. Here's a virtual tour for you to enjoy!
