Rich in history and in culture, Dedham MA was incorporated in 1636, making it one of the oldest communities in the state. It is the Norfolk County seat, so the well preserved downtown has an architecturally diverse array of public buildings and handsome historical houses. Nicknamed Contentment, Dedham has a wonderfully diverse population and is known to be a “people-friendly” community.
There are a large number of community organizations in town, including the venerable, and these days whimsical “Society in Dedham for the Apprehension of Horse Thieves.” The Dedham Health & Athletic Complex is a popular destination in town and houses 11 indoor tennis courts, two indoor pools, outdoor pool with waterslides, an MRI facility and much more.
Dedham was the first town in the nation to implement a tax-supported free public school system, which remains solid to this day. At the junction of Route 95/128 and Route 93 and only 10 miles south of Boston, Dedham is in an excellent location for commuters. Two commuter rail stations get you to Boston in under 20 minutes.
