The Town of Norwood, which was officially formed in 1872, was until that time part of Dedham, known as the "mother of towns," as fourteen of the present communities of eastern Massachusetts lay within its original borders. Long used as a hunting grounds, Norwood was first settled by Ezra Morse in 1678. He set up a sawmill in what is now South Norwood, the part of town to which the first concentration of families, almost all of whom were farmers, migrated over the next half-century.
Although times have changed, the work ethic of Norwood's employees have remained the same. With a tight-knit, inclusive community, a diverse population, winning sports teams, and beautiful and safe suburban town Norwood truly is the The Town Everyone Returns To.
