Event Details

The New England Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians
cordially invites you to:

 One Town, Three Commons:
The Framingham Story 

Join us as we explore one town’s narrative about architecture, public space, and community identity.

We’ll begin by touring the nineteenth-century buildings of Framingham’s original Centre Common: the Greek Revival Village Hall; the Academy Building, an unusual stone Greek Revival school building; and the Edgell Memorial Library, a Victorian Gothic library built as a Civil War Memorial.  Inside the Library we’ll see the Framingham History Center’s current exhibition on Framingham’s original Shoppers’ World, an iconic, outdoor mid-century shopping center.   We’ll finish by caravanning up the road to visit H.H. Richardson’s Framingham Railroad Station, one of Richardson’s largest stations for the Boston & Albany Railroad, which is currently the focus of intense local preservation efforts.


Participants to provide their own transportation for this event.  The Centre Common is most easily accessible by car.

RSVP by April 16, 2013.
