Winchester, MA Homes for Sale
Find homes for sale in Winchester MA if you want to be located 8 miles Northwest of Boston in a thriving residential community noted for its public school system, beautiful homes and easy access to the city. Originally an agricultural community with upland farms on the western side of town, the advent of the Middlesex Canal and the Boston and Lowell Railroad created a lively industrial village with grist mills, tanneries and small factories along the banks of the Aberjona River. The late 1800's saw the development of Winchester as an affluent suburban community as wealthy businessmen from Boston moved out to "the country" and built substantial homes. The town's character is still largely reflected in the beautiful houses built just before and after the turn of the century.
