Recognized as one of the safest towns in Massachusetts, Charlton boasts a rural landscape that’s centrally located between major urban areas. Charlton was once the leading producer of milk in the country, and although the dairy farms have been replaced with housing, Charlton still is known for its beautiful rolling farms and orchards. A favorite spot among locals is the infamous Clam Box- a small seafood and ice cream spot on “Dresser Hill” with romantic sunset views overlooking several towns in Central Massachusetts. For those seeking outdoor recreation, the 500 acre Buffumville Lake and Dam site offers disc golf, hiking, swimming, picnicking, hunting, boating and fishing. Home to a vast variety of wildlife, it's not uncommon to spot deer, rabbits, and songbirds along your journey. Primitive camping can be experienced on the three-acre island that is only accessible by boat.
