The Hampden Branch, which first opened to the public in 1900, services the Hampden, Medfield, and Remington neighborhoods.

The Hampden branch was opened on July 2, 1900 at 3641 Falls Road. The iron columns on the front porch were made by Poole and Hunt, a local foundry whose owner funded the construction of the building. Read more Pratt location history.
