North Attleboro is an industrial town on the Rhode Island border. In pre-colonial times, it was the site of the Bay Path, a major Native American trail to Narragansett Bay, the Seekonk River and Boston. North Attleborough borders Cumberland and is 15 minutes from Providence and 40 minutes from Boston. Interstates 95 and 295 intersect just over the Attleboro line, and both run through the town.
Housing covers the gamut from apartments and condominiums to new single family subdivisions. The town has several rivers, streams and brooks running through it, including the Ten Mile River and the Seven Mile River. There are many ponds and lakes, including Greenwood Lake (site of a fish hatchery) and Falls Pond, among others. The WWI Memorial Park and Zoo brings an expanse of nature and space directly adjacent to the local YMCA. On the other end of the spectrum is the Emerald Square Mall, one of the most traveled malls in the area. The town also encompasses a multitude of venues for religious worship.
Localities include Adamsdale, Attleborough Falls and Sheldonville Farms.
