Devens, Massachusetts, is a village that includes parts of Harvard, Shirley, and Ayer. From 1917 to 1996, the village was home to Fort Devens, one of the largest and most significant United States Army bases in New England. Emerson Green represents the latest chapter in the proud history of Devens, as part of MassDevelopment’s comprehensive re-use plan for this dynamic, scenic region.
Emerson Green lies just two miles north of Route 2 and offers easy access to Route 495 and I-190. The restaurants, museums, and shopping opportunities of Leominster, Concord, and Worcester are less than 30 minutes away, and residents can be in downtown Boston within an hour. Emerson Green is also conveniently located less than two miles from the Fitchburg-South Acton Commuter Rail line.
