Maynard is a part of the Greater Boston and MetroWest region, and shares a border with Acton, Concord, Stow and Sudbury. It is a quiet town known for its small-town values, historic architecture and role in the Civil War and for having a wide array of competitively priced single-family homes within commuting distance of Boston. Maynard is largely surrounded by conservation areas, such as the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge, Gardner Hill Conservation Area, Red Acre Woodlands and Captain Sargent Conservation Land.
