Steeped in History

Framingham’s rich history includes ties to the abolitionist movement as well as the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Abolitionists used this Massachusetts town as a gathering spot in the years before the American Civil War and from 1854 to 1865, the Anti-Slavery Society held a rally every Independence Day. At one rally in 1854, William Lloyd Garrison, a noted social reformer and journalist, burned the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850, any judicial laws that support it, and the United States Constitution to forge the way towards more progressive law creation. In the year 2000, Framingham celebrated its tercentennial, or 300-year anniversary. It is currently known for its Framingham Heart Study, an ongoing cardiovascular study of the residents of the town that is quickly making waves in the scientific community.
