Welcome to the Framingham History Center’s Virtual Exhibits! We invite you to browse portions of our collections on your own schedule and wherever you can access the worldwide web. Virtual exhibits enable us to supplement the exhibits in the Framingham time line, in the Old Academy building, and our special exhibitions in the Edgell Memorial Library building. We invite your comments and questions by email or telephone.
The Framingham History Center’s Virtual Exhibits are made possible through the skill and dedication of History Center volunteers, and supported, in part, by a grant from the Framingham Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Framingham Illustrated, 1880-1980
Thirty-eight lithotype illustrations from photographs of Framingham were published in 1880 by the Lithotype Printing Co. of New York, NY. The photos are grouped to represent the three principal villages of Framingham – Framingham Centre; South Framingham; and Saxonville. These books were sold door to door, and customers could purchase a small album representing a single village, or a larger album combining all three.
