Oakes Ames Memorial Hall North Easton, MA
Constructed in 1881, Oakes Ames Memorial Hall is one of five buildings in North Easton designed for the Ames family by renowned American architect H.H. Richardson. The imposing structure has all the distinguishing characteristics of Richardsonian Romanesque, the architect’s eponymous style. Although the building was originally referred to as the Town Hall, it has served no administrative purpose and has been used since its construction as a gathering place for meetings, lectures, performances and events.
