Abington is a small bedroom community of 13,000 people some 12 miles south of Boston. The town was famous as part of the shoe industry and, as recently as 1986, had a working dairy farm. Today, though the town's roots in manufacturing and agriculture have given way to a primarily residential community character. Several small and medium size businesses flourish within the boundaries of the quiet town.

The town was founded in 1712 and although it has experienced substantial growth over the last several decades, the community retains a great deal of open space and a rural feeling. Residents are proud of the parks and recreation facilities which have produced several fine athletes. In addition, the growth of the town has not diminished the local spirit. There are several active civic organizations; annual celebrations include everything from an enthusiastic St. Patrick's Day parade to a huge 4th of July celebration attracting thousands from the South Shore.

Abington enjoys a fine school system and full time fire and police departments. Town facilities also include a water department, sewer department, public library and municipal golf course.

The future of Abington remains bright as development continues. Residents believe that future growth is certain to be spurred on when the Old Colony Railroad, which will connect the town to Boston by rail, is reactivated.

In addition, the town will have its own commuter rail station. Abington keeps an eye on the potential for development that lies on the horizon. At the same time, the town keeps its feet planted firmly on the ground in a desire to maintain the high quality of life that makes Abington a special place to live.
