The Town of Saugus is located adjacent to Route 1, a major
thoroughfare. 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
National Historic Register, are landmark tourist attractions. The
River, which meanders through the town, provides an environmental
for many species of fish as well as a home for the largest lobster fishing
Narrative supplied by community.
