Framingham, Massachusetts can trace its history to 1647 when the original township was settled along the Old Connecticut Path on the banks of the Sudbury River. Interestingly, the city was originally known as Framlingham - to this day the reason why the "L" was dropped is still not known.

During the years ahead of the American Civil War and during the war itself, Framingham served as an important rallying point for the Abolitionist movement. Similar to much of the United States in the post-World War II baby boom, Framingham quickly saw an influx of residents to newly constructed, ranch-style homes.
Today, Framingham serves as a key catalyst for the continued economic growth and success in the local community and the entire New England region. Within close proximity to our Framingham hotel are the corporate headquarters for several Fortune 500 companies. These Framingham corporate headquarters include TJX (parent company for T.J.
