Linwood is a village with its own post office in the towns of Northbridge and Uxbridge, Massachusetts.

The zip code of the Linwood post office is 01525. As a village of both Uxbridge and Northbridge,[2] Linwood has separate municipal services from Uxbridge or Northbiridge, for fire, police, EMS, School district, public works, and other services, depending on the town (township) boundary. Worcester County, Massachusetts Sheriff, Lewis Evangelidis runs corrections, and court services from West Boylston, and Worcester District is the regional judicial jurisdiction. The Uxbridge district court serves surrounding towns. Linwood is closest to the villages of Whitinsville, MA, and North Uxbridge. The village of Linwood was predominantly settled by French Canadians, who historically worked in the local textile industry.[2] The Whitin Cotton Mills at Linwood were the principal industry and are a good example of the industrial architecture of the 19th century.

In 2011, construction began on the Linwood Mill (pictured on right) to create 75 units of 55+ ‘active adult’ senior rental residences.[3]

The Butler Block in Linwood is listed on the National Historic Register, under Uxbridge, Massachusetts. The Linwood Cotton Mills are also listed on the National Historic Register. The Linwood Historic District includes late Victorian Structures, the Linwood Cotton Mills, and extends down Linwood Avenue to Pine and Maple.[4] The Blackstone Valley and Linwood are now part of the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, the oldest industrialized region in the United States. The Blackstone Valley is New England's Historic National Park area. Built in 1866, the Linwood Mill was the crowning glory of James Fletcher Whitin and Charles Pinckney Whitin, sons of Colonel Paul and Betsy (Fletcher) Whitin.[5] The late Paul Newman and Joanna Woodward, who lived in Connecticut, were frequent guests at an old Victorian Inn near this historic mill in Linwood.
