Methuen New Home Communities

Situated in Essex County, Massachusetts and bordering the state of New Hampshire, Methuen is an independent city just 2-miles from downtown Lawrence. Originally settled in the late 1600s, Methuen was established as a town in 1725 and finally evolved as a city in 1972. The city has a relatively young population and is ideal for new families looking for a dynamic community.

The Loop is a super-convenient mall located in Methuen, perfect for quick shopping trips, with major retailers including Gap, Marshalls and a Super Stop & Shop. Less than 10-minutes away, in adjacent Salem, New Hampshire, is The Mall at Rockingham Park, a premier destination with over 150 stores. You can expect all your favorites including JC Penney, Macy's and Sears, alongside smaller brands that add to the variety. National brands such as Walmart, Target and Family Dollar are found all the way from Lawrence, through Methuen and into Salem. Shopping indeed has never been this convenient.

If you have a taste for something different, then you will instantly love the culinary delights that Methuen has to offer. Thwaites Market is a unique, and very popular, English market with a traditional butchery and a delightful assortment of homemade items. Their Pub Pies look authentic, but their fillings are gourmet. No meal is complete without dessert, and Dolce Freddo Gelato is a family-owned business offering some of the best sweet delights you will ever find. Another family-owned business worth supporting is Mann Orchards. In operation since 1877, the farm now includes a popular store selling fresh produce, baked goods and craft beer and wine.

All that tempting food will require both a healthy appetite, and a healthy lifestyle, and the perfect solution is the Methuen Rail Trail. Making good use of the old rail system, the Methuen section of the Granite State Rail Trail system runs for 2.4 miles through the heart of the city. With beautiful scenery, the trail accommodates cyclists, runners and walkers, and connects to both the Lawrence Spicket Greenway and Salem's Bike- Ped Corridor.

Methuen Public Schools District manages five public schools, while you will also find three private schools within the city limits. Higher education is very well addressed, from a community college and two private universities in Lawrence, to Mount Washington College in Salem.

Methuen is both historic and dynamic and with the help of New Home Source, you can find your dream home in a stress free manner.
