Welcome to the

Framingham Centre Common
Cultural District

The Framingham Centre Common offers the timeless vista of a prototypical New England village with churches and stately white homes gathered around a rectangular common shaded by trees along its length. With this 18th century common as its hub, the Framingham Centre Common Cultural District (FCCCD) offers a rich, distinctive blend of the old and the new, including historical architecture, arts, cultural, and educational institutions, businesses, and open space.

So whether the purpose of your visit is to check out a museum exhibit or participate in any number of events on the Common, shop, have a meal, or paddle the Sudbury River, the Framingham Centre Common Cultural District is the place to enjoy these activities and more in the heart of our city.
