Is your property on the National Register of Historic Places?


In 1989, the Wakefield Historical Commission submitted Wakefield's Multiple Resources Nomination to the Massachusetts Historical Commission and the National Park Service. As a result of this nomination, many sites were listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Sites were listed either individually, and by district. To find out if your house or property has achieved this honor, please check the list below. (Histories of all National Register Properties, along with over 250 other properties considered significant to the town's architectural or historical heritage, can be found in the Wakefield Historical Commission's "Cultural Resources of Wakefield" booklet available at the Beebe Memorial Library.)
