In an article published in the May 2017 edition of The Muncipal, Norwood Town Hall is called a community treasure.

Restored to its former beauty
Norwood, Mass., Memorial Municipal Building, also called Norwood Town Hall, has been a beloved landmark ever since it was dedicated Nov. 11, 1928- the 10th anniversary of the armistice ending World War 1 - in honor of those killed in the war. The four-story building was constructed out of Weymouth, Mass., granite and had the good fortune of being completed prior to the Great Depression. Beyond its impressive granite facade, Norwood Town Hall features a 50-bell carillon tower, which houses the Walter F. Tilton Memorial Carillon, one of nine carillons in Massachusetts and the seventh largest in the United States.
