In recent years, CNN/Money and Money magazine ranked Westwood 13th on the list of “100 Best Places to Live in the U.S." Boston magazine listed Gay Street in Westwood on the list of the “Best Streets in the Boston Area.” Suffice to say, the town has a lot going for it.
Westwood maintains a small-town air in most of its residential neighborhoods, yet offers a great combination of corporate/business offices, large retail establishments and smaller local businesses in several established commercial areas. First settled in 1640 as a section of Dedham, Westwood still has several structures in town from the late 18th century that give a historical feeling to the town.
