Topsfield has a total area of 12.8 square miles and, at the 2000 census, there were 6,141 people. Topsfield lies in the geographic center of Essex County, Massachusetts. Like its namesake in Essex, England, Topsfield has within its bounds some of the highest land in the county. The Pierce Farm hill rises 280 feet above sea level and the Great Hill and Town Hill are both over 260 feet. The Ipswich River (called ‘”Agawam” by the Native American tribe of the same name) flows through Topsfield. Hood’s Pond, covering an area of sixty-eight acres in the northern part of town, is the largest body of water in Topsfield, though most of it lies in Ipswich. Topsfield also includes parts of the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, the Bradley Palmer State Park, Willowdale State Forest and the entirety of Topsfield Town Forest.
Clockwise from the north, Topsfield is bounded by Ipswich, Hamilton, Wenham, Danvers, Middleton and Boxford. Topsfield is located approximately ten miles north of Salem and 22 miles north of Boston. Part of the North Shore in name, if not in actuality, Topsfield is twelve miles south of the Merrimack River and eight miles from Massachusetts Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Interstate 95 passes through the southwestern corner of town, with exits in neighboring Danvers and Boxford. The town is nearly bisected from southwest to northeast by U.S. Route 1, known locally as the “Newburyport Turnpike” or “Old Boston Road.” From northwest to southeast, Route 97 also crosses through town. (A few yards of Route 35 enter the town as well, before terminating at Route 97.) The now-abandoned Boston and Maine Railroad line passes through town; the town lies west of the Newburyport/Rockport Line of the MBTA Commuter Rail. The nearest airport is the Beverly Municipal Airport, with the nearest national and international air service at Boston’s Logan International Airport.
Topsfield is home of the Topsfield Fair, which attracted almost 500,000 visitors in 2008. The fair, one of the oldest in America, was started in 1818 by the recently formed Essex Agricultural Society. The first annual fair was a cattle show held by the society on October 5, 1818. The president of the society, Timothy Pickering, was awarded a first-place prize for the “superior performance of his plow.” The Topsfield Fair ran every year following that first show, with the exception of three years during the Civil War and three years during World War II. The fair today features carnival rides, games and concert events in addition to the more traditional attractions, such as exhibitions of livestock, rabbits and cavies, crafts, horses and produce. The fair also hosts the All New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off. The current record-holding pumpkin was entered in 2007 and weighed 1,689 pounds.
Topsfield residents have traditionally celebrated Memorial Day with a parade through the center of town to honor Topsfield’s living veterans and those who have died in service of the county. Topsfield residents served in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Spanish American war and all of the wars of the twentieth century. A memorial to Topsfield’s veterans is on the common.
