Although first settled in 1669, Norfolk was not incorporated as a town until 1870, when the 15.2 square mile town broke away from Wrentham. Today, the town has blossomed into a bustling community of over 11,000 residents and a beautiful oasis outside of the dense urban jungle of Boston just 20 miles northeast. A significant portion of the town is dedicated to protected conservation land, helping to preserve the natural beauty of its many forests, farms, and native animals.


Norfolk, along with the towns of Wrentham and Plainville, is part of what is colloquially known as “the Tri-Town” or the “King Philip Towns” because of their shared school system.


Norfolk is the home of King Philip Regional Middle School and The King Philip Warriors of King Philip Regional High School in Wrentham. The Warriors have been a dominant force in Massachusetts athletics in recent years, winning back-to-back state championships in football in 2016 and 2017 as well as the 2016 state title in softball. King Philip is also widely known for their nationally recognized music program which has won many accolades as of recently, including marching band national championships in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2016.


In addition, Norfolk is also home to several local eating landmarks including The Horse & Carriage, Eagle Brook Saloon, and Cilla’s Coffeehouse and will soon be a public safety hub with the opening of the Metacoment Regional Dispatch Center serving the towns of Norfolk, Wrentham, Plainville, and Franklin.
