Historic Town Common

Located in Central Massachusetts

The stunning, huge town common is one of the prettiest in New England with a magnificently detailed bandstand, truly wide open green spaces graced by shady trees, park benches, a baseball field, the incredible 1886 Rice Memorial Fountain and well-preserved Federal, Colonial and Victorian homes elegantly surrounding the green. It's a great place to walk, watch a baseball game, relax by the lake, attend a summer concert, or just watch the world go by at a much slower pace where people haven't forgotten that it's one of life's simple joys to get outside and get fresh air.

Welcome to the Town of West Brookfield

West Brookfield resonates as a hidden Massachusetts travel gem, far removed from the 21st century in the best sense, with its beautiful tree-lined side streets featuring fine, old neighborhoods, and scenic, secluded Lake Wickaboag. It is really like going back in time, as further evidenced by families congregating on their front porches, country roads with big farms and open land.
