Cambridge – Your Opportunity Community!

We are Growing !

As the county seat, Cambridge is at the center of this growth. Its continued expansion — in residential construction, new industrial sites, big-box retail, health care, and manufacturing operations -- points to new opportunity.

Highly Competitive Workforce

Cambridge supports a well educated, hard-working workforce. Almost 80 percent of the workforce has at least a high school degree. Over a third has attended college or graduate school. High school graduation rates top 92 percent -- well above the national average.

A Thriving Small Town, with Big City Opportunities

Cambridge has managed to preserve its small-town charm while attracting a diverse and healthy economic base. Its historic downtown supports an eclectic mix of shops, tech start-ups and service businesses — all catering to a growing population of 7,000 residents.
