Edgell Memorial library
Built to commemorate the valor of Civil War soldiers, The Edgell Memorial Library in Framingham, Massachusetts was the town’s first free-standing public library. As one of the few remaining Victorian Gothic style buildings in the area it remains a testament to the spirit of civic engagement and public service which built it. The Library is a cultural pillar of the community, which rallied to build it in 1872 and once again to save it from demolition in 1963.
The Edgell Memorial Library is currently used as a cultural community center by the Framingham History Center. Hosting monthly programming, local exhibitions, and a museum shop, this building serves as a touchstone for the community.
