About Oakes Ames Memorial Hall
In the late 1870s, the children of Oakes Ames commissioned the great American architect Henry Hobson Richardson to design the Memorial Hall as a tribute to their father. Richardson, the architect of Boston’s beloved Trinity Church in Copley Square, responded with a picturesque masterpiece using his signature architectural elements of rounded arches, dramatic roof lines, and heavy masonry adorned with medieval-inspired carvings. Adjacent to the Hall is another H.H. Richardson masterpiece, the Oliver Ames Free Library.
A powerful silhouette against the sky, the massive structure sits high above the street on granite outcropping with a commanding view of the surrounding historic district. A romantic blending of architectural styles, the building is known as Richardson Romanesque. The Memorial Hall nestles in natural surroundings of a remarkably well preserved 19th century Massachusetts mill village that is also famous for its architectural treasures.
