Former Nobscot Post Office & Library This was the first Framingham Post office and it was opened June 18, 1878.   The Post Office doors closed in 1933.   However in 1905 the Framingham Pubic Library took over half of this small building, which is only 12 X 24-feet.   It was called the Nobscot Depository and it was closed in 1953.   At the rear window you could also purchase your railroad tickets.   This building was totally utilized and it has been saved. It was moved from its location near the railroad bed to the other side of Water St. where it is nestled in between Heritage and the Hemenway school.
