For towns, 150 is the new 100. Kidding aside, among our neighbors, Maynard, created in 1871, is definitely the new kid in towns. Our immediate neighbors date to 1635 (Concord), 1639 (Sudbury), 1683 (Stow) and 1735 (Acton). Only Hudson and Maynard are close in age, as Hudson, also a mill town carved out of farm towns, was created in 1866. For the entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts, looking at all 351 cities and towns, fewer than 20 were incorporated later than Maynard.
