The town of Southborough has undergone many transformations, evolving from a farming community to a factory town, and more recently, a landing pad for high-tech companies like EMC Corp.

Still, it's what you can expect of an old New England town -- winding scenic roads lined by stone walls, a white steeple church, a pre-revolutionary cemetery and two of the nation's oldest and most prestigious boarding schools.

Southborough's affluent residents are a mix of old and new money and include former Red Sox pitcher Luis Tiant.
