The town of Bellingham is located in southeastern Massachusetts, with Rhode Island as its southern border, and is part of the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor. Bellingham is in the center of a triangle formed by the cities of Boston, Worcester and Providence, RI, approximately thirty (30) miles from each of these destinations.  While Bellingham offers a wonderful, small town atmosphere with easy access to forests, lakes, and bike trails, it also provides easy access to numerous amenities such as ample shopping, a major cinema complex, state-of-art library and senior center, numerous athletic fields, two (2) regulation 18-hole public golf courses and one (1) regulation 9-hole public golf course.  

Bellingham’s ethnic composition has become extremely varied over the years.  This diversification is spread throughout the town.  According to the 2001 town census, the total town population was 15,075, and the projected population for 2010 is only 16,100.    In 1999, the median household income in Bellingham was approximately $60,000.00.    Over 60 percent of parents of students have some post-secondary and/or college education.  Only 3.4 percent of the families in town have incomes below the poverty level.  More than 97 percent of the town’s population is white, and English is the primary language spoken in student’s homes.

The town has experienced significant large-scale commercial growth over the past decade, which has created a very strong and stable tax base for the Town.  However, many small business and retail operations also exist.  The tax base is expected to grow due to significant residential growth and continued commercial development along the Interstate 495 area over the coming years.
