Dracut, MA Town Information

Dracut is a town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States. As of the 2010 census, the town population was 29,457. Dracut is primarily a suburban community, belonging to Greater Lowell and bordering southern New Hampshire. Additionally, it is in the northern portion of the Greater Boston metropolitan area, and geographically part of the Merrimack Valley.

 

Dracut is bordered by Tyngsboro to the west and the city of Lowell to the south and west in Middlesex County, Methuen to the east in Essex County, and Pelham, New Hampshire, to the north in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire. Tewksbury (Middlesex County) and Andover (Essex County) border the town to the south over the Merrimack River. However, there are no crossings of the river in Dracut's town limits, and thus Tewksbury and Andover are inaccessible across the river directly, and one must instead cross the Merrimack via either several crossings in Lowell or via I-93 in Methuen, in which the Andover line is on the bridge.

 

The earliest census data shows the town of Dracut having a population of 1,173 residents in 1765. As of the census of 2000, there were 28,562 people, 10,451 households, and 7,733 families residing in the town. The population density was 1,366.7 people per square mile (527.6/kmē).
