With a population of about 3,400 residents, West Brookfield is a quintessential New England town nestled among the Quaboag hills about half-way between Springfield and Worcester.
As you enter the Center Historic District of our town, you will come upon the picturesque Town Common, lined with stately colonial homes. Recently restored to its original glory, the focal point of the Common is the Rice Memorial Fountain. The Common is also the site of our War Memorial Plaza and the Helen Paige Shackley Bandstand. The Common is host to many exciting annual events, including The Asparagus & Flower Heritage Festival, the lighting of the town Christmas tree during "White Christmas in West Brookfield," and the "Concerts on the Common" summer music series. From June to October, the Farmers' Market bustles with activity every Wednesday from 3 until 6:30 PM.
