The historic Ames Schoolhouse originally built in 1897 is being preserved and adapted as new Townhall and Senior Center.
The attic originally designed to be unoccupied will be converted into a fully occupiable flexible space. The project also features full lateral upgrade to the building while being sensitive to its historic nature. The building will contain Town Offices such as the Building Department, Assessors Office, as well as many other Town Administrations. It will also be the home of the Dedham Counsel on Aging.
