All My Sons Boston Moving Company treasures the town of Dedham (pronounced deh-dm). Dedham was incorporated in 1636. It is located in Norfolk County, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Dedham’s history dates back to 1635 where most of the town would grind corn using power generated from the Charles River. Soon there were industrial mills manufacturing cotton, wool, wire, carpets, cloth, nails, and stamped coins. The town started constructing churches and shops for the manufacturer workers. One of the oldest standing timber-framed houses, the Fairbanks House, is also located in Dedham and is now a museum. If you are interested in learning more about Dedham’s history, visit one of the three districts, including Franklin Square-Court (also known as the Dedham Village Historic District), along with Connecticut Corner District and Federal Hill District.

Dedham Pottery is notorious. The infamous Robertson Family were all potters. Hugh Robertson tried to carry on his father's legacy and wanted to perfect the "Robertson's Blood" glaze, an elusive red glaze. Instead, however, he became famous for the popular line of crackleware dinnerware with the crouching rabbit. Although there were other designs such as elephants, dolphins, polar bears, swans, and lilies, the crouching rabbit became known as the "Dedham rabbit." It was tragic when Hugh died of lead poisoning as a direct result of all his glaze experiments. But his legacy lives on in the minds of an international audience of collectors.
