Hopkinton Named “Best Place to Live” by Boston Magazine

According to Boston Magazine, finding the best place to live is all about your stage in life and your lifestyle. Are you just starting out, looking to downsize or ready to trade-up? If you’re ready to trade-up, the magazine lists Hopkinton as one the “best places” to live.

“With prosperous neighborhoods, good schools and half-century old grocery and drugstores, Hopkinton is indeed a Rockwellian throw-back that seems farther removed from the city life than the 26 miles that separate the town, the start of the marathon, from Boston.”

LOST DOG

He is a deaf sheltie of 13 years. He is also arthritic. He was last seen by School Street near the water tower. He is brown, blackish and has a large white tuft. He will go toward someone and bark to let them know he wants to be fed. He is very friendly and loveable. His name is Rascal. If you open your arms out wide he just may run to you or if you slap your legs. He had a blue electric fence collar on as well as another collar with a little bell and his name and our phone number. He also has a chip in him so a vet can scan and locate his home information.
