Chelsea Massachusetts is an old town settled in 1624 with a rich and proud history. The Industrial Revolution transformed Chelsea into a bustling manufacturing center and Chelsea flourished along with its ambitious and ethnically diverse population which boomed.
Chelsea is located next to scenic Boston Harbor on the Mystic and Chelsea Rivers and is a tiny 1.8 square miles community. From its numerous hills and high points, Chelsea offers a magnificent view of Boston's nearby skyline. Chelsea is also home to tree-lined streets with affordable, well kept homes, ballparks, playgrounds, excellent schools and a busy, friendly downtown district. Logan International Airport is only five minutes away and connects Chelsea with the world.
Chelsea has been unlucky enough to have suffered two major fires in its history-one in 1908 and then again in 1973. Each time the citizens and businesses of Chelsea rebuilt their city with remarkable zeal and determination and prosperity returned. Chelsea's unwavering pride, spirit of cooperation, friendliness and leadership are making Chelsea a most desirable place in which to work or live.
