Among the rows of storage shelves and tucked away in archival boxes lie the most important artifacts housed at the Framingham History Center (FHC). Ten of these precious objects have been chosen by the curator and the community designed to reinforce the local, national, and international significance of the FHC’s collection. Spanning three hundred years, with objects as small as a pin to as large as a billboard, this exhibit will underscore the variety of the FHC’s holdings. Set in a modern gallery style, each artifact stands alone in reverence to its importance. Framingham’s Top 10 has something for everyone – paintings, sculpture, documents, clothing, Americana, music, and neon.
