NORWOOD
Massachusetts, U.S.A.
A MODEST TOWN
Welcome to the Town of Norwood, Massachusetts.
Norwood is part of the Greater Boston area and home to around 28,000 people. The town was named after the sister-city Norwood in England, and is situated on the Neponset River, which travels all the way to Boston Harbor. The town was incorporated in 1871 and was originally one of 14 towns part of Dedham, The mother of all towns. The area that now comprises Norwood used to be the hunting grounds of Indians, until the first European settler Ezra Morse discovered the area in 1678. Morse set up a sawmill in the South part of town, which attracted plenty of farmers over the next half-century. Norwood features a few landmarks from the old era, including the Oak View Mansion. The historical structure was built in 1868 and was the scene of vivacious socializing back in the day. Some of the more preeminent figures that visited the mansion were Supreme Court Justice William Howard Taft and President Calvin Coolidge. The town of Norwood doesn't really have a commercial district, as it is partly a census-designated place. Hence, stores and restaurants are spread out across the area that comprises Norwood. However, there is a large cluster of automobile dealerships along Route 1, which is known as the Norwood Automile. There is also a town square that mainly houses historical places like the town hall, and the Morill Memorial Library. While Norwood doesn't have many cultural attractions, art buffs may enjoy a visit at the Day House museum. The museum was once the home to renowned photographer Fred Holland Day, and is also the headquarters of the Norwood Historical Society.
