The Dedham Square Circle (DSC) is a designated 501(c) 3 non-profit founded in 2006 by a small group of residents and Square business owners who came together out of their collective commitment to preserve the historic downtown of Dedham and to stimulate business and economic development by promoting its unique history, amenities and culture. DSC is a civic organization started by the community, for the community. DSC and its volunteers have infused new energy into Dedham, become a recognizable presence, and built a level of credibility with residents, business owners and the Town.
DSC is the only organization focused solely on Dedham’s historic downtown and its needs, offering residents opportunities to get connected, stay involved and be part of the process. The organization aims to enhance the appearance of the Square, improve parking and other services for shoppers and visitors, promote tourism and organize special Square events. These efforts will strengthen the economic vitality of the Square, build on Dedham’s history and create a strong and positive link to town government.
