Cremation in Franklin
Franklin, Massachusetts is one major city served by Consigli-Ruggerio Funeral Home. This medium-sized city of 33,000 people contains the oldest library in Norfolk County, which has over 100 books once owned and donated by Benjamin Franklin.
The town was settled in 1660, and it was incorporated in the course of the American Revolution. Franklin is named after Benjamin Franklin and is also the birthplace of Horace Mann, a pillar of public education. Franklin is home to a Historic District, which includes the Red Brick School, one of America’s oldest one-room schoolrooms, several surviving homes built before the Revolutionary War, and 32 buildings built before 1900. The Town Common’s bandstand was built in 1917, and the city also includes a playing and recreation field and playground.
Consigli-Ruggerio also services Foxborough, another historical town in Norfolk County. Foxborough is home to over 16,000 people. It was settled in 1704 and incorporated in 1778; the town’s namesake was Charles James Fox, a member of Parliament and one who supported the colonies prior to the Revolutionary War.
Several historical sites still survive in Foxborough, including Foxborough Grange Hall; Memorial Hall, built in 1868, which stands in the center of town and was associated with the Grand Army of the Republic; and F. Gilbert Hills State Forest, more than 1,000 acres of land which is often used for biking, horseback riding, and similar pursuits. More current points of interest include the Orpheum Theatre and the Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots football team. Foxborough has been home to several famous faces, including former Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu, actor Chris Sullivan, and Denver Bronco Tom Nalen.

Wrentham, Massachusetts is another small city that has been served by Consigli-Ruggerio Funeral Home for many years. A city of just over 10,000, Wrentham has a long history. It was founded by English settlers in 1661 and was officially incorporated in 1673. The original buildings were burned down during King Philip’s War of 1675-1676 but were rebuilt in subsequent years. At one time, Helen Keller lived in Wrentham; she moved there in 1905 and lived in the town for over ten years.
A good deal of Wrentham involves both land and water, as it contains two large lakes — Lake Archer and Lake Pearl — as well as being bordered by several smaller lakes.
