Old Town House in Marblehead by Jeff Folger It was a cloudy and dreary afternoon in Marblehead. The Old Town House, built in 1727, is often referred to as "Marblehead's Cradle of Liberty" for the many pre-revolutionary war meetings held there. It is one of the oldest town halls in America that has been in continuous use. Today it's more Museum then serving any real function. The upstairs areas are usually used during the Marblehead arts Festival and the lower sections are the firemen's Museum. You can see the Grace community Church in the distance and down the road in the opposite direction is the old North Church. This is old town Marblehead at its best. Where you won't find a big box store until you get out of old town and over towards Salem. I love the walk at any season along Washington Street and then down to the waterfront visiting the little shops selling goods from around the world.
