Raynham was established in 1731 as a distinct and separate township carved out of the northeast corner of the “Town” of Taunton. Known as the site of the earliest successful iron works (1652), Raynham continues today as a thriving, successful community.
Once a rural hamlet, the town is fast becoming a suburban bedroom community. But because of its location at the crossroads of Route 24, 44 & I-495 (as well as Route 138 & 104), it is also a commercial center in its own right.
Raynham Woods Commerce Park, a 330 acre site, is home to some major corporations and is one of the premier industrial parks in Southeastern Massachusetts. Business thrives along two major corridors, Routes 44 and 138.
