As part of the town's effort to list properties on the National Register of Historic Places in the 1980's, close to 400 properties were recognized as architecturally, archaeologically or historically significant. Research was done into these properties, and an inventory sheet was completed on them. This information can be seen in the Local History Room of the Beebe Library, bound into a large black binder entitled "The Cultural Resources of Wakefield."

All of the properties that appear on this list are protected by the town's Demolition Delay ByLaw. For more information, click here.

If you believe your property merits inclusion on this list, but is not listed, send us an e-mail with information about the property.
