A weekly column by Town Historian Richard DeSorgher. This week focuses on the burning of town hall 90 years ago this week.
It was exactly 90 years ago, on Jan. 17, 1923, that the Medfield Town Hall burned for the second time in 50 years. That morning dawned bitter cold and all of Medfield was covered in a blanket of white from a recent snowstorm. It was just before 7 a.m. when the first alarm came in that Medfield’s seat of government was on fire. Before the day was over, the entire inside of Town Hall was gutted, leaving only a partial shell standing. The blankets of snow on the nearby buildings kept the fire from spreading. Hot embers were reported to have fallen up to two miles away. A defective chimney was thought to have been the cause. Luckily the town had installed a fireproof cement vault which saved many of the town records. This was a lesson learned…

A son recalls how the holiday has changed for him over the years.
For most kids in the 1960s, Memorial Day was just another morning to sleep in or stay in pajamas and watch TV. After all, there was no school bus to catch. Back in those days, there were no big shopping sales or TV marathons to catch up with. After waking up, it was time to play ball, hang out with friends and look for a cookout. For most kids my age, that was the normal holiday routine. Not for me. I had business…Army business. Living down the road from a cemetery had a lot of advantages. It was cool place to play hide-and- seek or to scare the other kids in the neighborhood with tales of ghosts and zombies. It was also an effective cut-through from my friend's house on the other street. Memorial Day was different. There was no time to …
