Recent stats for Shirley MA- activity has fallen since the end of the tax credit: Shirley MA is located off of Route 2 between Harvard and Leominster MA, and is bisected by Route 2A.

I think that the big thing that I run into about Shirley is that people have not heard of it, and consequently don't know where it is. It's a touch Lake Wobegon-ish in that regard- a nice little region that the surveyors have neglected to put on the collective mental map, but, really- it's here! Recently, we've been working on the infrastructure of our little town of  about 6400 souls. We have a new police station, a new town hall, a great new library ("The Library For Everyone") and a new middle school.
