Because of the town's unique setting, that allows industry and business to flourish, yet maintains a suburban style of living, Saugus has come to be known as the most enterprising community north of Boston.
By traveling a short distance from the highway, visitors can see that the town still retains its rural characteristics. The two hundred year old Town Hall and the historic Saugus Iron Works, both of which are on the National Historic Register, are landmark tourist attractions. The Saugus River, which meanders through the town provides an environmental habitat for many species of fish as well as a home for the largest lobster fishing fleet in Massachusetts. Alos, September brings out the best of the town each year with its Founders Day festivities. It's a time for townspeople to show off wares through sidewalk bazaars and to celebrate the town's historic past through a series of planned activities; an event that all who live here look forward to each year.
