Dedham is a town that radiates an old-world charm, mainly as European colonists established it in 1635. Located in the Norfolk County of Massachusetts, it has a dense suburban feel and offers a cozy vibe with the cafés, restaurants, and parks lining the town. One can visit the Dedham Historical Society, walk around the Historic Dedham Square, or visit the Fairbanks House which is North America’s oldest standing timber-frame house. Not only this, Mother Brook, which is the first human-made canal in North America, is also located here. This quaint town also has literary roots as it has been an inspiration to many authors including Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women, who spent some years of her life in the town of Dedham.
