🇺🇸 Tewksbury is a town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Tewksbury was first settled in 1637. There is no evidence that the town was named after 🇬🇧 Tewkesbury, England. Still, Tewksbury, Massachusetts and Tewkesbury, England kept connected through a local committee called the Twinning Committee. One of the oldest sections of town is the area around the Shawsheen River. This is where the Shawshin tribe settled, allowing them access to a great food source through fishing in the river. Tewksbury was also known for a historic visit by President Andrew Jackson, stopping off at local watering hole, Brown's Tavern.
Tewksbury has a population of over 31,388 people.
