Edgell Memorial Library was constructed circa 1872 and consists of load-bearing masonry walls, double-hung and fixed wood windows, and slate roofs. Built to commemorate veterans of the Civil War, the building originally functioned as a library and is now occupied by the Framingham History Center with portions of it used to store artifacts. The building is located in the Framingham Center Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As part of a full exterior envelope rehabilitation, SGH was retained in 2007 to investigate leakage of the historic slate roofs.
