Athanaeum Hall

Athanaeum Hall in the Saxonville section of Framingham, MA

Athanaeum Hall was built in 1847. It was first called the Saxonville Town Hall. It has also served as a school, meeting hall, jail, hospital, polling place, newspaper press room for The Saxonville Mirror, and as a hall for wedding receptions, religious services, veterans' meetings, plays, lectures, sporting events, and dances. Recent renovations made by The Friends of Saxonville will preserve the building for future generations.
