About us

The Dedham Village Preservation Association, Inc., a non-profit organization founded in 2004 for the purpose of keeping residents of Dedham informed about issues within a historic mixed-use community comprising residences, retail businesses, and government buildings in close proximity. Helping to maintain this delicate balance has been, and continues to be, our most important mission.

Projects

Currently we are enthusiastically supporting, in partnership with the town, the rescue of the Old Village Cemetery on Village Avenue, one of Dedham’s most important historic resources and one of the oldest burial grounds in the country. We hope that you will join us in bringing this important piece of Dedham history back to life.
