Norwood is a mid size community that was originally formed in 1872 when it broke off of nearby Dedham. The first settler of the area that would later become known as Norwood was Ezra Morse in 1678 who opened a sawmill in what would later become South Norwood. The community then grew as farmers and their families moved to the area over the next half century.
Norwood is now a quiet, modern New England town with a quaint downtown area and public green. Residents who wish to visit or work in nearby Boston have access to several nearby commuter rail stops.
Norwood also hosts an excellent public school system, a thriving automotive sales area known as The Automile and many post-secondary education institutions. It has also been the birthplace of numerous professional major league baseball athletes over the years, such as Allen Ripley and Bill Travers.
