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.

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…

Medfield selectmen chair Osler Peterson praised the recent efforts of the Medfield DPW, Police and Fire in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene to restore normalcy to the town.
Wednesday, September 21, 2011
To the editor, The Medfield Police Department, Medfield Fire Department and the Medfield DPW have come in for lots of well deserved praise and appreciation for how they and their employees handled the town's response to Tropical Storm Irene. Just as NSTAR has come in for some apparently well deserved frustration over its shortage of communication and a coordinated response. I want to publicly thank the town's employees, as I was truly impressed by and thankful for the work that they did during Tropical Storm Irene - I did drive around on that Sunday afternoon and saw lots of the clean up activity taking place. As I said at the last Board of Selectmen meeting, what the town employees did, to respond to the multitude of problems that were …
