A historic renovation…
Nashoba Park is a renovation of the former Community Memorial Hospital, built in 1928. Nestled in the heart of the Historic District on the hilltop just above downtown Ayer, we are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The hospital building was completely restored and updated with a two-story addition creating a new entry, reception area, community room, living rooms, library, dining room, country kitchens, sunrooms, Country Store, Beauty Salon / Barber Shop and a fully enclosed courtyard with a fountain. The original brick façade boasts ornamental lintels of locally quarried stone above large windows, as well as decorative wood cornice. The interior design evokes a historic feel throughout with brass fixtures and warm tones of green and terracotta.
…in a historic town.
Named after James Cook Ayer, the wealthiest patent medicine businessman of his day, historical downtown Ayer served as a major commercial railroad junction in the late 1800s into the early 1900s.
