Although it is now primarily considered a bedroom community, it does have some businesses, especially along Route 9.
It shares a public high school with Northborough and is also home to two private schools, St. Mark’s School and the Fay School.

Southborough – An overwhelming majority of Southborough residents voted to acquire a preservation restriction for the Burnett-Garfield House at 84 Main Street at a well-attended Town Meeting held April 11 at the P. Brent Trottier Middle School. Those who presented arguments in favor stood and applauded Southborough’s Bridget Brady and friends — who almost two years ago at age 14 started a movement — that culminated in the vote.
Using existing Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds, the town will purchase a $970,000 bond to purchase the restriction. There is an expectation that the state will contribute some amount of matching funds. The money will go to the property’s owner, Jon Delli Priscoli, who has up to four years to restore the exterior of the property. He says that he will open a bed and breakfast.
