Hi, you're probably already looked at this info http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/Uxbridge-Massachusetts/com… and the census data is quite old since 2010 is the year for the new census which happens every 10 years and demographics do change quite a bit over a decade.

You might find this economic report useful http://www.economicexpert.com/a/Uxbridge:Massachusetts.html but, if you are really curious, you should go to Uxbridge, MA yourself and probably go shopping at Hannaford or maybe at a Victory or White Hen Pantry and interact there, maybe even visit the public library http://www.librarytechnology.org/lwc-displaylibrary.pl?RC=8107.

Sorry to seem so obtuse, but a community that may seem friendly to one person, may not seem so to another. You know yourself best.

Best of luck and if I can be of any more help, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

It's very nice! They have a bran new High School that is Beautiful! If for some reason you don't like the schools, MA is a school choice state, meaning you can bring you children to any school, call me for more details or search on line for Massachusetts School Choice.

Take your family to the Uxbridge public library and chat with the librarians. Lovely women all. They can tell you everything you may want to know about this town. Three generations of my family went to schools here. It's a good system but of course the quality of any education lies in the quality of the teachers, in that regard Uxbridge has a good track record.
I agree that a trip to Hannaford supermarket will give you a good idea about diversity and friendliness. If you approach the locals in a friendly manner you can expect most of us to respond in kind. Even us old folks who have seen so many changes in town over the last 60 years.

I have lived in Uxbridge for 43 years of my life and loved it.Some day wouldn't mind moving back.I went to school here and was brought up here.It's a quiet Town,people are friendly and willing to help.Everytime i need something i go to the senior center and they always help with either the answer to my question with a friendly smile or with what i need for free.I can't speak for some of the select few you might meet that might be gruppy or having a bad day in this bad ecconmy.I hope this helps you in your discision to move to Uxbridge..We also have low crime rate in that town as well.

Your best resource for these questions would probably be answered by those that actually live & work in the Uxbridge community. Just like the previous post, you'd be the best judge when it comes to these questions & their answers. You should consult with their school department, town hall, houses of worship, community associations & groups as well as the local police & politicians to see what services and features the community offers and how they may apply to you, your family and interests. These local resources as well as the local professionals in each area can detail and respond to your questions most accurately for your consideration.

Hope this helps,

I do have to agree with Greer that it all depends on your tastes and interests if a town if any town is a fit for you. I live in the town next to Uxbridge and have many friends and sold many houses in Uxbridge. It is truly a personal decision for you based on your needs, wants, and lifestyle.

Uxbridge is a very socio- economic & ethnically diverse town. Over the past 10 years has seen lots of growth and growing pains (like every town that grows). To see if it fits for you in terms of schools here are two sites to check out:
www. schooldigger.com
www. doe.mass.edu

as for checking out the town via the internet:
http://www.mma.org
http://www.massstats.com

Visit the town, its town hall, it grocery store (which was a Victory - but is now a Hannaford), Public library. Its town common, or a few of the stores downtown or one of the pizza shops- talk to the people and get a feel for it.

For schools- visit the schools- talk to the teachers, principals

Look at the town website: what does it offer in info, in meetings to attend

Be as proactive in your search as possible- as I tell my buyers - You are buying the home, I can tell you all I want , but you have to live here- it needs to meet your needs- not mine.

That being said, good luck in your search, if you would like some help from an experience agent who know the area, please feel free to contact me.
