Topsfield, MA

Topsfield is a small rural town with a strong sense of community and agricultural history. 

It’s the home of America’s Oldest Agricultural Fair, The Topsfield Fair, and features pristine rivers and rolling hills. Popular locations for hiking and outdoor activities are the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, the Bradley Palmer State Park, and Willowdale State Forest. Other places of interest include the historic Parson Capen House and Gould Barn.

In addition to the local village shopping center, there are various small businesses located principally along Route 1; however, the town remains primarily a residential community with a classic New England Town Common. Summer begins in Topsfield with the Topsfield Historical Society’s Strawberry Festival in early June. Bowls of fresh strawberries, whipped cream and piles of shortcakes are served by volunteer members to the attendees.
