The Tramp House

The Tramp House is located on Town Hill in Norfolk, Massachusetts right next to the Norfolk Public Library.  This little building was built in 1886 and was originally the town jail. The building was also used as a place of rest for tramps passing through the area. Now it is preserved by the town of Norfolk. The building is so unassuming that you might miss it if you weren't looking for it.
