Situated in close proximity to Routes 128 and 3, the community has enjoyed significant residential and business growth in recent decades, with several high-tech companies making their home in town along the Burlington border.

Established nearly four centuries ago, the community offers an expansive historic district with a classic New England town common and a multitude of attractions, including the 1790 Job Lane House; the famous Bedford Flag, the oldest known surviving flag in the United States, flown during the first battle of the Revolutionary War and currently on display in the library; and several National Historic Landmarks commemorating the 1775 Battle of Lexington and Concord, where dozens of Bedford residents fought bravely. A popular destination for nature lovers is the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, a 12-mile stretch of wetlands that is home to cottontail rabbits, deer, foxes, beavers, and over 200 species of birds. Annual celebrations include Pole Capping in April, when the Bedford Minuteman Company re-enacts a Revolutionary era tradition, and Bedford Day in September, which features a parade, street fair and dancing.
Community residents enjoy outstanding municipal services. Education is a top priority, and local schools are well-known for scoring competitively by all standards. The library serves everyone and has active children's programs. A senior center, open daily, offers health and leisure services. An in-town minibus service runs weekdays.

Braintree Mass Home for Sale Reviewed by Braintree Mass Realtor Michael Mahoney of Remax Way
| Michael Mahoney of Remax Way gives you a tour of a Braintree home located at 372 Elm Street.
The Town of Braintree is a suburban city in Norfolk County, Massachusetts, United States. Although officially known as a town, Braintree adopted a municipal charter, effective 2008, with a mayor-council form of government and is considered a city under Massachusetts law. The population was 35,744 at the 2010 census. The town is part of the Greater Boston area with access to the MBTA Red Line and is a member of the Metropolitan Area Planning Commission's South Shore Coalition. The first and current mayor of Braintree is Joe Sullivan.
The town of Braintree was incorporated in 1640 and named after the English town of Braintree. It comprised land that was later split into Randolph, Holbrook, and Quincy, as well as parts of Weymouth and Milton, Massachusetts. The town of Braintree was the birthplace of presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams, as well as statesman John Hancock. General Sylvanus Thayer, the Father of West Point was also born in Braintree in the section of town now known as Braintree Highlands.
Braintree is the site of the infamous 1920 murders that led to the trial of Sacco and Vanzetti. It was the retirement home of the co-inventor of the telephone Thomas A. Watson.
Braintree's population grew by over 50% during the 1920s.
In January 2008 Braintree converted from a representative town meeting form of government to a mayor-council government.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the town had a total area of 14.5 square miles (37.6 km²). 13.9 square miles (36.0 km²) of it was land and 1.6 km² (0.6 sq mi/4.34%) of it was water. This includes Pond Meadow Park and Sunset Lake.
Braintree is situated in the Greater Boston Area, which has excellent rail, air, and highway facilities. State Route 128 and Interstate 95 divide the region into inner and outer zones, which are connected by numerous spokes providing direct access to the airport, port, and intermodal facilities of Boston.
From 1948 to 1968, the town was the home of Braintree Airport, a general aviation airport located near Great Pond that was used by civil defense officials and private pilots. The airport featured a 2,800 foot dirt runway and offered flight training. Residential development, proximity to the town's water supply, and a number of accidents led to its closure in 1968.
Braintree is home to several large companies, including: Greater Media, Haemonetics, and TopSource LLC.
From 1964 to 1991 Braintree was the home of a Valle's Steak House restaurant. The chain was an East Coast landmark that stretched from Maine to Florida. The 30,000 square foot Braintree restaurant was the largest in the chain when it opened and featured a dining room that sat 600 customers, banquet rooms that accommodated 1,000; parking for 700 cars, and two kitchens, one of which was used exclusively for banquets. The restaurant had over 150 employees. Max Bodner of Quincy was the original manager. One of the chain's busiest locations, it was capable of serving over 5,000 customers per day. The restaurant changed names several times after the Valle's corporation closed in 1991 and was eventually razed to make way for a Toyota dealership. Among the notable moments in the restaurant's history was in 1980 when then presidential candidate Ronald Reagan made a campaign speech at a South Shore Chamber of Commerce luncheon.
