Southbridge in Worcester county, Massachusetts

Southbridge

The town of Southbridge, Massachusetts is located in the south-central area of the state, bordering Connecticut.

Southbridge has always had a diverse population. After the civil war, many French-Canadian and Irish immigrants moved to the town to work in the mills. Later, during the 1970s and 1980s, immigrants from Laos, Puerto Rico, and Vietnam began arriving. The rich cultural diversity remains in Southbridge to this day.

Southbridge's culturally diverse population brings with it an equally delightful diversity in dining options. The Metro Bistro offers French Fare, the Vienna Restaurant offers Swiss delights, and Thai Orchid satisfies cravings for Thai cuisine.

Southbridge has three elementary schools. These are divided by grade, and not by location. Kindergarteners and first grade students attend the Eastford Road School, children in grades 2-3 the Charlton Street School, and students in grades 4-5 the West Street School. Grades 6-8 are assigned to the Mary E. Wells Junior High School, and grades 9-12 the Southbridge High School.

Southbridge offers diversity, convenience to major routes such as I-84, and a historical, early American feel.
