The town of Bolton, MA, is fairly small, home to approximately 5,000 people. It is primarily an apple orchard town, with quite a few produce farms and horse ranches thrown into the mix. We have a small country grocery store, two pizza places, a dry cleaners, a florist, and a few small chruches. That's it. And yes, main street is actually a two-lane road called Main Street. Here are a few snapshots of this picturesque "country" town.

Every town out here has at least one old graveyard. And by old I mean graves that are 300 years old! Rick's theory is that the graveyards boast the most beautiful autumn colors because of all of the natural fertilizer. Sounds strange, I know~but it's true!
Here are a few shots from along Main Street.
Tomorrow I'll post some beautiful pictures of the "back roads" of Bolton~such beautiful scenery!
