Whether punctuating the skyline or serving as the focal point, Abbot Hall stands out as one of the defining landmarks in the town of Marblehead, MA. This is the second Town Hall built in Marblehead, MA. The first was constructed in 1727 but the town had outgrown it by 1876. In that year, the cornerstone for Abbot Hall was placed and it opened as the center of the Town government in 1877. The building is home to ‘The Spirit of ’76’ painting. This gallery showcases images posted to the Wednesdays in Marblehead site that feature Abbot Hall as a prominent element.
