We believe that Framingham’s history is an incredibly valuable asset to this town that has for the most part been overlooked. We are changing this not only through the restoration of our town’s most historic properties on the Centre Common but also through “home grown” programming that focuses on unique Framingham people, places or events. We have raised over $1.5 million to halt the degradation of the Old Academy, the Edgell Memorial Library, and the Village Hall and in doing so we have helped preserve this historic section of Framingham while keeping these buildings open to the public.
Our programs correspond with exhibitions on subjects like Shoppers’ World, The Dennison Manufacturing Company, or Framingham’s role in the Civil War. Our programs have been attracting standing room only crowds and we host over 5,000 visitors annually.
