Welcome to the Town of Walpole, Massachusetts
A group of sawmill residents who built along the great Cedar Swamp petitioned the Annual Town Meeting of Dedham in 1721 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 the Prime Minister of England, Sir Robert Walpole. 293 years later, it is our pleasure to serve our residents, businesses, and visitors. Welcome to Walpole!
