Owning or renting a home there provides the best of both worlds.

During the 1800s, the town was a major location for leather tanneries that sprung up in response to the demand for leather shoes prompted by the Civil War. Today, the tanneries are long gone, but the history pays homage to a city that was once a leader in leather production.

Homes are a hot commodity in Woburn - some estimates put the vacancy rate at 5 percent - and the increased demand in the area means you should give yourself ample time to find the perfect residence.
