<h2>Colonial New England</h2><p>A Rich History- Settled in 1641, the town of Burlington wasn't officially incorporated until February 28, 1799. An agricultural town for most of its history, Burlington's industry was centered around the mills along Vine Brook from colonial times through the late 19th century. The majority of local merchants sold hops and rye to Boston, produced milk, cured hams, cultivated fruits and vegetables, or operated small shoe making shops.</p><p>The post-war economic boom and construction of Route 128 sparked a population increase in town, and from 1955-1965 Burlington was the fastest growing town in the state of Massachusetts. The population tripled and residential and commercial development flourished. Today, Burlington is a thriving suburban industrial town with a population of 23,000.</p><h2>Job Opportunities in Burlington</h2><p>Local Commerce- With the expansion of the Burlington Mall and Wayside Commons center and the array of new technological companies that have launched in Burlington, the town has seen an economic boom over the last 15 years. The town is well positioned in the state, at the intersection of major highways I-95 and US 3, and only 20 minutes from Boston, 30 minutes from New Hampshire, and one hour from the state of Rhode Island. The surplus of new commercial buildings along Cambridge Street has ushered in many new companies.</p><p>Some of Burlington's major employers include Rounder Records, Oracle Corporation, TD Bank, and many other large-name companies. Burlington's Lahey Clinic Medical Center also provides the community with ample employment opportunities.</p>
