DEDHAM
Massachusetts, U.S.A.
THE MOTHER OF TOWNS
Welcome to Dedham, Massachusetts.
This little town of around 25,000 residents is the county seat of Norfolk County and is located on Boston's southwest border. The municipalities Needham, Westwood and Canton, further bound the Town of Dedham. Dedham sometimes gets referred to as the mother of towns because 14 present-day communities originally existed within its borders. Dedham was settled in 1635, when a group of people arrived from Roxbury and Watertown. The city is home to the historical Fairbanks House, the oldest intact timber-frame house in the country, built in 1636. The small town also boasts another landmark, namely the first man-made canal in North America, Mother Brook. The canal was created in 1639 and linked the Charles River to the Neponset River. Dedham comprises a multitude of neighborhoods. The center of the town is Oakdale, where the finest street is Woodleigh Road. The street was declared one of the best in Greater Boston, and have many homes designed by the famous infrastructure architect Henry Balley Alden. Riverdale is another neighborhood situated on an island surrounded by the Charles River and Long Ditch, while Fairbanks is the area between East Street and Wigwam Pond. Other neighborhoods include The Manor, East Dedham, Upper Dedham and Ashcroft. Recreation in Dedham includes the Dedham Health and Athletic Complex for sports and fitness, and the Legacy place, an outdoor shopping center with every imaginable retail establishment, restaurant and entertainment options!
