Don’t forget to check out the permanent Civil War exhibit as well! The history
of the Civil War and Framingham is a collection of intriguing individual

a united front and supported its servicemen with wholehearted zeal.
In April 2017, the FHC launched its first app featuring In the Footsteps of a
Civil War Hero: A Walking Tour of General Gordon’s Framingham on the Centre
Common. This free app is a self-guided version of one of our most popular tours
with historic images, professional narration, and location-aware tour stops.
