Bellingham in Norfolk County, Massachusetts — The American Northeast (New England)
Original Town Common
circa - 1898
The local Militia drilled on the Common until 1847. A bandstand was built in 1871 and many Concerts, Memorial Day Observances and Grange Fairs were held on this green. Bellingham's first Town Common came to an end in 1965 with the construction of the Bellingham Police/Fire Facility. Later in 1991, this same building was renovated and became the Bellingham Police Station, as we know it today.
