North Leominster is a village or neighborhood of the city of Leominster, Massachusetts.

Settlement started in 1725, and by 1740 Leominster was separated from the town of Lancaster. Settlers north of North Nashua River were in the North village. The name change over time from North Village to North Leominster. In 1851 a new post office was established in North Leominster giving itself the feel as a separate town. In 1845 when the railroad from Boston was extended to Fitchburg it ran through the North Village parallel to the river.

In 2005 the MBTA finished construction of a new commuter rail station at North Leominster on the Fitchburg Line from Boston. North Leominster is accessible from the Lancaster, MA line on MA Route 2 by taking the exit for Harvard Street, or from the exit for Massachusetts Route 13.
