This station was built in 1882 and has been demolished in ca. 1950. Boston & Providence Railroad [later Old Colony (1888) New York, New Haven & Hartford (1900)] built Dedham Station as a monumental granite and brownstone affair designed by Boston architectural firm Sturgis & Brigham that had several recent commissions with the then prosperous Boston & Providence. Dedham Station ultimately served as terminus for the Islington, Dedham and West Roxbury Branches.
