Norwell Town Center
The Norwell Town Center neighborhood is anchored by the James Library as well as the First Parish Church, both notable Norwell landmarks. The James Library is housed in a historic 1874 Victorian building that features a concert hall with a Steinway B grand piano, a free lending library and an art gallery offering new exhibits each month. Its popularity extends beyond Norwell to the entire South Shore arts community. Route 123 bisects Norwell Town Center running west to east while Central Street cuts through the center of town running north to south. A small collection of historic homes ranging from capes, greek revival and more traditional colonials are clustered around Town Center offering convenience to town and the Norwell schools. Residents also enjoy the Norwell Pathway, a two-mile network of paved walking/cycling trails, sidewalks and boardwalks that extend from the middle school all the way east to Gaffield Park.
