With a population of 18,848, the town of Pembroke, Massachusetts is the perfect size for a small town feel in a big city environment. Located just 23 miles from Boston, the town offers plenty of things to do while being a short drive from a large city.
Pembroke's geography can be divided in half. The northern half is dominated by the rivers and streams of the area, flowing through thick forests which once provided the lumber for the North River's shipbuilding industry. The southern half is dominated by several ponds and Silver Lake, where the towns of Pembroke, Kingston, Plympton and Halifax come together.
