North Leominster

North Leominster is a village or neighborhood of the city of Leominster, Massachusetts. Settlement started in 1725, and by 1740 Leominster was separated from the town of Lancaster, Massachusetts. Settlers north of North Nashua River were in the North village. The name changed over time from North Village to North Leominster.

In 1851 a new post office was established in North Leominster giving itself the feel as a separate town. In 1845 when the railroad from Boston was extended to Fitchburg it ran through the North Village parallel to the river.
