The Hampshire County town of Wilbraham, a bustling suburb of Springfield, is home to about 14,600 residents within its 22.4 square miles.

The Hampshire County town of Wilbraham has come a long way since its incorporation in 1763 when its population numbered about 400. The community has since blossomed into a bustling suburb of Springfield that is home to about 14,600 residents within its 22.4 square miles.

Wilbraham’s town center is said to be one of the largest designated historical areas in the United States, and the oldest Methodist meeting house in New England is located there, along with stunning examples of Victorian and colonial homes, some dating as far back as the 1730s.

The bustling town has roots in farming and manufacturing. Wilbraham was home to the community’s first major employer: the Collins paper mill, which opened around 1872, closed in 1940 and was damaged in a fire five years later.

Wilbraham was also known for its lush peach orchards. During the early 20th century, several fruit and poultry farms enjoyed thriving businesses, and today the corporate headquarters of Friendly’s Ice Cream is situated in Wilbraham.

The town is quite geographically diverse. The Wilbraham Mountains, which dominate the landscape, are part of the Central Upland of Massachusetts, while a portion of Wilbraham west of the mountains lies within the Connecticut Valley Lowland.

Education has always been a source of pride in Wilbraham, which is home to a regional school district known as the Hampden-Wilbraham Regional School District. Numerous arts, sports, community and civic groups also provide residents with a wealth of social and recreational opportunities.

Residents enjoy the many parks and facilities which allow for passive recreation, including hiking trails, scenic parks, picnic and playground areas, a disc golf course, a cozy beach area and a wealth of sports fields. 

The town offers a mix of commercial retail shops, services and restaurants within its neighborhoods, which include Wilbraham Center, North Wilbraham, East Wilbraham, Wilbraham Mountain, Boston Road Corridor, South Wilbraham and the Pines Section.
