About Walpole

Welcome to the Town of Walpole, MA

Our town was founded in 1721 after a group of sawmill residents who built along the great Cedar Swamp petitioned the Town of Dedham for the privilege of becoming a separate Town with their own minister.

Their petition was finally accepted in 1724 and they chose their town's name in honor of Sir Robert Walpole, who was the Prime Minister of Great Britain at the time. 293 years later, it is our pleasure to serve our residents, businesses, and visitors.
