What it's Like to Retire in Uxbridge

Uxbridge is a small town of about 18,000 near Milford and Worcester in Massachusetts.  Many residents work in Boston or the nearby suburbs. As an old town in Massachusetts it has several claims to fame, particularly being home to America's first women voter, Lydia Taft.  Once famous for its woolen manufacturing, the Air Force Blue uniform was made here.  Several movies including the Great Gatsby were filmed in some of the state parks nearby.
