Central Region Features

Most communities in the Central Region grew up around mills, many of which have since given way to high tech companies and various support industries. The region still hosts a number of metal fabricating and plating firms, plastics manufacturers and remnants of the paper, shoe and furniture industries. A few large farms dot the landscape, but agriculture has slowly been replaced by residential and commercial development.

The major river basins (Blackstone, Nashua, Concord, Merrimack, Chicopee, French and Quinebaug, and Millers) as well as the Wachusett Reservoir and its watershed are among the chief natural features of the Central region.

Features of the Central Region:

  • Made up of 77 towns and cities
  • Population of nearly 900,000
  • Blackstone River
  • Nashua River
  • Millers River
  • Concord River
  • Merrimack River
  • Chicopee River
  • French River
  • Quinebaug River
  • Wachusett Reservoir
